These pictures were taken from an AC130 Specter gunship aloft and two and a half miles away. The insurgents in the picture are setting up a roadside bomb and planning to ambush an American convoy which followed a short while after these pictures were taken.
They were setting up for the ambush and were pacing off the distance from the bomb to where the convoy was to pass by.
Turn your sound up. The gunship is armed with 40mm cannon.
