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. "Too early to speculate, but let's speculate anyway......." .
    Could be pilot error too, Sergey.
  2. Could be aliens!

    don't go to soon to the tin foil hat pile.
  3. Helicopters, indeed aircraft, trains, busses and cars crash all the time. Two helicopters crashing could suggest a collision. What's the point of jumping to the AQ as suspects as soon as an american aircraft is lost? Do they sit in boats off the coast hoping for a few helicopters will fly by?

    Thoughts to the families of any losses.
  4. Sounds like a collision from the news reports. Two rescued and ten missing as of last info. It doesn't look good for those ten Marines unfortunately, pray I'm wrong.
  5. Heard it was a night training mission. Classic conditions for a collision, even with NVGs. Good hunting to the SAR teams, hope they find the missing personnel.
