UK Apache down, Afgan

Discussion in 'Aviation' started by Mighty_doh_nut, Sep 5, 2008.

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:

  1. Heard from a very credible source that a British Apache is laying on its side after crashing in Afganistan.

    Crew been recovered and taken to hospital.

    Speedy recovery to the crew.
     
  2. Bad CO

    On the assumption that this is true, can I request all involved not to speculate about the cause. This will be determined by the BOI in due course.

    Hope all involved make a full recovery.
     
  3. Wouldn't have posted if it wasn't..... not in the habit of inventing stories about crashed helicopters and injured friends.
     
  4. I can confirm that this is 100% factual.
     
  5. Good to know that the crew were recovered. Get well soon TWA.
     
  6. Helicopters can be replaced, glad the crew made it. Get well soon lads.
     
  7. Oh god, as if they haven't had to cope with enough recenly.

    I hope the crew are not too badly injured & in the hands of the BSN Med Gp.

    All the best to the crew from an old Crab ... and, as The Cad said, the hardware is replaceable.
     
  9. Im more worried about how it went down. Not speculating Bad CO, just hoping to fcuk its not been in contact.

    Glad the crew are okay - take it easy lads.
     
  10. Doesn't matter how it went down so long as the crew are ok.

    Like BCO says, no point in speculation, the BOI will square that away.
     
  11. Spent a few years working on these; crashworthiness is second to none, lets hope the crew are both OK.
     
  12. Speedy recovery to the injured.
     
  13. hope there up and about soon
    hate to be billed for an apache though would make a dent even in a pilots wage packet :twisted:
