EVEN A SU­PER STAL­LION NEEDS A BEACH DAY

Air & Space Smithsonian - - Soundings -

ON APRIL 15, THE SAME DAY A POSTAL WORKER SHOCKED TOURISTS by land­ing his gy­ro­copter next to the Capi­tol build­ing in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., to make a po­lit­i­cal state­ment, a U.S. Ma­rine crew was mak­ing a big­ger splash on a beach in San Diego. The CH-53E Su­per Stal­lion made an emer­gency land­ing (be­low) af­ter a low oil pres­sure light went on. The only per­son with any right to make a “Dan­ger Zone” joke was in at­ten­dance: Kenny Log­gins posted a video pos­ing with the chop­per to his Face­book page.
