(COLOGNE, GERMANY) 19FEB2014 --FedEx Airbus captain Mark Estabrook was lying in his Cologne, Germany hospital bed when his surgeon told him he couldn't guarantee he would get to keep his lower left leg. It was almost gangrene when he arrived at the hospital. Antibiotics were started through an IV drip immediately. The surgeon was more concerned about keeping his operating room sterile than he was about keeping Mark's leg intact. Estabrook was also hit with shrapnel in the right shoulder with only slight infection there.

"It's likely the Berkut contaminated the grenades before they threw them at you," the surgeon told Mark.

The first grenade ricocheted off his helmet hitting his shoulder and was immediately followed by the second which hit his lower left leg. The surplus U.S. Army helmet and bullet proof vest most likely saved his life, as a Euromaidan protester near him bled out on the spot after a grenade hit his carotid artery on 18FEB2014.

The surgery lasted almost three hours, and yes, Estabrook got to keep his leg. But how did a FedEx pilot end up in Kyiv, Ukraine photographing the Euromaidan Revolution? It's a long story that Mark is writing for a book.

In short, the Air Force veteran was trained as a photographer at UT Austin and covered the music scene in Texas during the 1970s as part of that experience. As the events in Kyiv unfolded in the American media, he realized their narrative was simply lifted from Russian disinformation.

 

Estabrook grabbed a Nikon D2X, with its incredibly slow memory writing speed, a Nikon F5 with expired HP5+ and jumpseated to Europe. Technically, he was on a FedEx vacation during the revolution in Kyiv, but he was wearing his National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) ID badge while shooting in Maidan.

Mark soon learned the people who protested and fought in Maidan were good people. In fact, they saved his life. Ukrainian oligarchs and politicians grabbed the headlines. They were noted for their corrupt ways but the people who stood up to them were brave. Many people were wounded and killed. No matter what group or background they came from, they put their differences aside to snatch freedom from a corrupt regime with close ties to Moscow. 

Estabrook is aware the book is not the complete picture of the revolution from anyone's perspective, even his. He wants everyone to know it was an American photographer's experience in Maidan as captured on two older cameras. The Nikon D2X was not exactly known as an action camera. The recording media could not quickly capture more than 4-5 shots before the camera would literally freeze.
