Is That You Grasshopper

A couple of days ago I was doing some catchup reading and found this post on authorblog. In addition to tipping my cap to David for the thought, it reminded me of another sight that kind of set me back a little.

There I was, just minding my own business (on hole number 11, about to hit my second shot) when this noise distracts me, one I had not heard in quite some time yet eerily familiar. When I looked up, off to my left, this is what I saw:

Boeing CH-47 Chinook, 1966

Actually, I saw two of them, flying in a formation similar to this:

The only thing missing were the guys on the ground, waiting to load up.

But for just a moment I had to look around, just to make sure.
