The best possible out come for the pilot would be the black box says something good.

I've always wondered why there are so many military deaths due to accidents not involving combat.

Boredom and stupidity. In high school I would lift 11 months out of the year about 1 day a month we'd see the military trep class come through... Not the best and brightest. At 17 I talked to a recruiter and asked him if he could get me on anything the flies "we don't make commitments" and your wanting me to sign what now?

Yeah I saw that on the news today. Crazy stuff.

Even crazier I never knew there was snow in Afghanistan.

Dumbass...

That TADS/PNVS assembly on the nose that I used to build (may even have built on that Apache)? Would have appreciated it getting wasted on the enemy...:mad::mad:

They have a lot of suicides, too. That may fall into that category. missed the stone building, but managed to hit the ground.

I bet he had the pitch under his armpit. Must've forgotten he was at high altitude with diminished power.

That would be my guess. even with the delta engines that airframe is underpowerd for that enviorment. Looks like it was a first cav aircraft. Seabob did you have anything to do with the MTADS or just the legacy TADS?

Definitely full collective, full tourque and tight @ass holes. I wonder... when they lost the tail rotor what was going through their heads when they were spinning across that field.
