Subject: A Soldier's Eye-View of "Blackhawk Down" (http://www.rb-29.net/HTML/03RelatedStories/03.09relcontinfo/09.02blkhwk.htm)

The author of the below E-mail, Gerry Izzo, is currently a Captain at Comair. He flew one of the UH-60s on the mission that is depicted in the movie "Blackhawk Down."

During the last few days many pilots have come up to me and asked me if I had seen the movie "Blackhawk Down." I don't mind talking about the movie, and I welcome the opportunity to talk about the heroism and valor of my friends. I just wanted to post some comments here about the movie and my impressions. Also I wanted to try to answer some frequently asked questions....

Seen the film and read the book too - missing all the pilots points made, except send in armour, not helicopters at the end. Adds a new perspective and so circulated to a few friends around the globe.

Keep them coming Sarejevo!
