Photos directly below were taken in September 1997.  This helicopter is deployed on a small airfield in Büdingen, near the village of Ortenberg, Germany. On an airfield opening I got the chance to take these pictures and I think, this insignificant little chopper has no friends at the front. Full of electronics, the Kiowa is a very effective weapons system.
