Trip to Mogodishu



SSgt Amy E. Vincent



I was a member of the crew that flew to Mogodishu, Somalia to fly CWO Michael Durant out to Germany after he was released. The tail number on this trip was 65-9411.

If you read the last few pages of "Black Hawk Down", where they talk about the men at base raiding Durant's belongings to get to his stash of Jack Daniels, and then we all toasted him while singing God Bless America. Anyway, a really great moment in my life, and I wanted to share it with everyone.

Here are a few photos of the trip....
