Mystery Audio I



During the early morning of 03 May 2007, I made this audio in Baghdad. 

Do you recognize this sound? Please feel free to guess…




[In a few days, I will publish a photo of what made the sound.]

A colleague took this photograph of the C-Ram firing.

Watch video of the C-Ram I shot while on the telephone here:

AC-130 Gunship. Reminds me of spending the night on a berm waiting to advance on an armed camp outside Najaf during the Battle of Zarqa. 1 Spector went black on ammo twice, another once. I will never forget that sound.
