Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:


    All eight people on board a US military helicopter have been killed after it made an emergency landing in Iraq.
    A US military spokeswoman said four air crew and four soldiers died when the Black Hawk came down near the town of Falluja, west of Baghdad.

    Falluja is a hotbed of the Iraqi insurgency and has seen several clashes between local people and US troops.

    Earlier, a US soldier was killed and 34 injured in a mortar attack on their base west of Baghdad.


    "A helicopter made an emergency landing near Falluja, there were four passengers and four crew members on board and there are no survivors," said the military spokeswoman
  2. I believe that type of landing is more commonly referred to as a CRASH 8O
  3. I'll agree with that snipes!

    Again, a sad loss. It will be interesting to see the cause.
