1993 - Shot over the shoulders of some Somalis watching a US Marine CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopter deliver a sling load of wheat to a field near the village of Maleel, Somalia. The delivery of the donated Australian wheat was a cooperative effort between the US Marines, who provided the helicopter, and the Australian Army, which provided the security. Some Australian Forces personnel are seen with Somali locals near the drop zone. The "Red Lions" of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 363 of Tustin, California fly the helicopters.
