Sandstorm at Al Asad

Here are some pics forwarded to me of a sandstorm approaching Al Asad Airbase, Iraq. Though I can’t vouch for the authenticity, I do know person who forwarded them and she knows the person who originally received them from someone in Iraq. Click each for a better look:



If anyone has any info on these, let me know. (and a hat tip to the reader who sent them in)
