Some incredible pics

I do get a considerable amount of e-mail with pictures but this is one I want to share with you. The tile of the e-mail is Times when you just have to trust the pilot. Just check out the runways on these airports. The mail concludes with this extraordinary photograph of a rescue mission in Afghanistan. With the usage of Photoshop on many of today's photographs I hope this one and the one before that weren't fakes. All photos are published with due credits to the owners of the pics, whoever they are. You can also view the pics in their original full sizes by clicking on them.

Tioman Island , Off the coast of Malaysia. The tiny runway is just ahead of the waters.

Wake Island, Pacific Ocean

Maco International Airport

Kuujjuaraapik, Quebec

Canadian Labrador Military Helicopter atop a rock, off the coast of Greenwood. This one could have been a Photoshop trick but the next one is unbelievable.

The e-mail says that the following photo was taken by a soldier in Afghanistan of a helicopter rescue mission. The pilot is a PA National Guard guy who flies EMS choppers in civilian life. He has placed the rear end of a chopper down on the roof top of a shack, on a steep mountain cliff, and held it there while soldiers load wounded men in the rear.
