Pilots Survive Helicopter Crash In Afghanistan

Quote:
Pilots in an American army helicopter have survived an extraordinary crash captured on film in Afghanistan.
The Apache AH-64 chopper is shown taking off from the Sar Howzah district in the Paktika province.
In the incredible footage it flies over buildings before doubling back on itself.
But somehow it approaches the ground too quickly and is shown slamming into the snow, spraying it around them.
The craft is even flipped on its top as the helicopter's rotas fling it across the landscape before coming to a rest.
Miraculously the two people on board the chopper survived and no-one on the ground was injured.
Last night the International Security Assistance Force said it believed the incident happened on February 6.
A spokesman confirmed that US Army officials were investigating how the accident unfolded.
He said: "At the time of the incident, two AH-64s were conducting overwatch for an ISAF patrol that was gathering supplies which were airdropped earlier in the day.

Re: Pilots Survive Helicopter Crash In Afghanistan

dangit lol.. was about to post this.

The info I saw about it was

"AH-64 Apache helicopter crash in Sharana, Afghanistan. The pilot was executing a maneuver known as "return to target". No one on the ground was killed and both pilots survived, possible criminal charges were laid."

Depends on how the vehicles are destroyed. In this case, the pilot will be dishonorably discharged and hit with a bunch of criminal charges.
