Some photos I took from a Blackhawk. Baghdad is a beautiful, ancient city with the potential to kill you at any given moment :) I can't wait to leave

There was a lot of dust in the air the day I took these photos.

Check out all the palm trees. I guess they are a native there.

I'm surprised you got some decent shots from the air this year. This is the most dust I've seen in the last 5 summers. Nice view, I'd like to see some closer views of the tomb if you get a chance to fly over again. Stay safe out here.
