US helicopters crash off Djibouti

#4
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.

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.

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.
