If you have ever wondered just how much force is behind a drop from a DC-10 - then you need to see this. A retired US Firefighter stayed home to defend his house and captured this amazing footage, don't miss it. Better red than black!
George Mirage Beotich and Greg from G.E.G Aviation Photography took a trip out to Camden, south west of Sydney, to look at the mighty CH-47D.
