1991 Gulf War 1 CH-53 Sikorsky Jolly Green Giant Aviation Art Painting Print by Aviation Artist Roger H. Middlebrook GAvA
The rescuing of downed aircrew has been a priority since WWI. By the time of the Gulf War in the 1990s most nations had the mission down to a fine art. In 1991 a Sikorsky H-53 ‘Jolly Green Giant’ lands for a pick-up while a pair of A-10 Thunderbolt II keep watch.
