    I got a hankering to rewatch a documentary I saw about SF in Afghanistan. I can't remember the name of it but one of the first shots is of the open back of a plane (c130?) with someone manning an m60 mounted by the ramp as they fly into Afghanistan (Kandahar?) The documentary ends abruptly when a convoy is hit with an IED late at night.

    Does anyone remember the name of it?

    Never saw it, but Restrepo made a lot of buzz.

    was it the one by a blonde reporter w/ a slight accent? I remember it was popular and just watched it again the other day. Trying to find it.

    If they were sitting a gun on the Ramp, it was either a CH-46 or more likely a CH-47 helicopter.


    Dunno the movie, but perhaps asking for the correct airframe will jog someones memory.

    Thank you for the aviation correction. I also do not remember the journalist or voice. I saw it on Netflix if that helps. Thanks again, I know it is a strange request.

    It was on the Discovery Channel; I think it was called "Inside the Green Berets".

    I remember seeing that. I don't recall the name but I remember them getting hit and one (or possibly more) of them died. Hard to watch.
