US: 14 Americans killed in 2 helicopter crashes


The Taliban are claiming responsibility for the Badghis crash. I wonder if they finally figured out the manual for the Chinese manufactured stingers which have been rumoured to be in country for a time now.
Sixteen Americans have died in a series of helicopter crashes and violent Taleban attacks across Afghanistan, in one of the bloodiest 24 hours for allied forces since the 2001 invasion.

Ten people were killed and at least 26 more were wounded when a fully-laden Chinook transport helicopter crashed in western Afghanistan during a pre-dawn fire fight with insurgents.

In the south of the country, four soldiers were killed and two others were seriously wounded when two helicopters collided in mid-air, officials said.
A very crap crap day !!!

RIP Gents
F*ck, hope the b*stards haven't managed to operate stingers. A dark day for our allies. RIP
Terrible news. RIP fellow comrades in arms.
