Sikorsky CH 53

Flickr Explore: #494 (24/09/08) --- Thank you everyone !

 

SERIES: REDISCOVERING MEXICO CITY

 

These are helicopters from Mexico's Air Force, the CH - 53 from Sikorsky. Around 30 years old.

 

They are part of the military parade that goes around Mexico City on Independence Day (16th of september).

 

Fresh out from the camera.

   

Mexico celebrates its Independence Day on the 15th and 16th of September. Mexicans gather in great numbers in the plazas of their cities and towns to hear "el grito" --- the call for independence.

 

This year, in the capital of the state of Michoacán: Morelia, in the peak of the festivities two granades (apparently) exploded in the middle of the crowds, killing 8 (data for now) and wounding 50.

 

This is quite probably the modus operandi of drug dealers that are deeply interned in Michoacan's illegal life.

  

DEATH PENALTY TO TERRORISTS & KIDNAPPERS NOW !

(And FUCK YOU Human Rights if you dare say killers still have rights).
