As I approached the airport today, I saw two helicopters on approach.  I 
assumed they were on a training flight from Fort Campbell, KY.  As I 
watched the first two shut down on the ramp, another flight of two 
landed.  I spoke with one of the pilots, who said these were the newest 
aircraft in the Army fleet, on their way from the factory to a base in 
Texas.  The ferry crews were all Army personnel.

Here are the four, lined up for refueling.

Here is one of the Blackhawks as it departed.

And, yes, the line girl was in charge of the fueling, though she had a 
helper.  She always does a great job.
