US transport helicopter crashes in Iraq
I'm tracking this story closely:
"A search and rescue operation is under way in Iraq after a US Marine transport helicopter crashed in the west of the country.
The US military said the crash happened shortly after midnight in the western desert close to the Jordanian border. No more details were released. "
I know nothing beyond what is reported in the above story. But I am certain that this is one of the CH-46s that I've routinely flown (and pictured on this website) when heading out to border. I'll update you as I know more . . .
