Aceh, Northern Sumatra, INDONESIA

The view from a helicopter from the American aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln flying down the west coast of Aceh towards the stricken town of Panga. A second helicopter lands in a flattened village. The entire coast is devastated following the tsunami which struck South Asia on 26/12/2004.
An underwater earthquake measuring 9 on the Richter scale triggered a series of tidal waves which caused devastation when they struck dry land. 12 countries were affected by the tsunami, with a combined death toll of over 150,000. Aceh, the closest landfall to the epicentre of the quake, suffered the greatest loss of life.
