16 killed in helicopter crash in Afghanistan

 article about 16 killed in helicopter crash in Afghanistan


A US helicopter crashed into the Afghan desert on Wednesday, killing 3 US government contracts and 13 American military personnel.  It is not known at this stage what caused the crash.  The helicopter appeared to have two damaged rotors , according to a witness, before it crashed.  The weather was very windy which may have been a contributing factor.  There does not appear to be any signs of enemy fire.

The CH-47 Chinook was returning to base after a rountine mission and radio contact was lost before it crashed.  A second Chinook made it back to base safely.
