    Damn that sucks! To the fallen I :salute:

    I hate it when this happens.

    Unfortunatly the Army Aviation Community is a very small community and as a former Blackhawk Crew Chief I am dreading to see the list of names when they are released. Chances are I know some of the crew.

    There were pictures in the Stars and Stripes this morning as well.

    Seems like a blade came into contact with the ground causing the crash. I can not confirm this however.

    I am very nervous about seeing the list of dead as I might very well know some of them. The unit was even a Germany based unit out of Mannheim.
