- Yuma, AZ
Just 20 minutes ago I was driving eastbound on I-8 in Yuma. Ahead of me, I saw a helicopter flying towards me straight down the highway at pretty low altitude, maybe 400' AGL. I see Cobras flying around all the time, so I didn't think too much of it, especially when I saw the wings on the side. As it got closer, though, I realized that it didn't have the right rotor mast for a Cobra, and the wings were sloped downward slightly. I then spotted a very distinct characteristic double bubble canopy. Sure as $#!+, it was a Mi-24 and it had ordnance loaded on the wings. Sooooo, is it go time yet?
