An Alaska Army National Guard UH-60L Black Hawk helicopter from the 1st Battalion, 207th Aviation Regiment "Arctic Eagles" lands atop the 17,400 foot-high summit of Mt. Foraker on May 7 as they conduct high altitude training on Mt. Denali and Mt. Foraker. The Arctic Eagles crews from Anchorage and Juneau set a new world altitude landing record for the Black Hawk helicopter during the exercise. Such landings are hazardous and only a handful of U.S. military and civilian units are capable of such operations.
