Honduran soldiers surround a U.S. Air Force helicopter in Puerto Lempira, Honduras, on Wednesday, August 5, 1982 during a joint military exercise along the Nicaraguan border near Puerto Lempira. The two week exercise, involving U.S. Air Force and Army units from Panama, comes at a time of mounting tensions between Nicaragua and Honduras. The objective of the exercise, according to American and Honduran officials, is the establishment of a permanent Honduran base near the border. (AP Photo/Escobar)
