Michael Yon Titled it “Pixie Dust”

, , ,

Michael Yon took this remarkable photo in Helmand province in Afghanistan. The helicopter’s rotors are hitting dust and producing sparks. Good thing there was no fuel leak at the time. Pretty shot of a dangerous situation.

I think that is static electricity – not 100% sure – one of my kids was an aviation tech in USMC, and the static charge on the rotor can evidently build up a lot of voltage.
