Downed Pilots Rescued by Chopper in Iraq

Recommended Posts



The story


A two-person Apache helicopter crew staged a dramatic rescue Monday, ferrying two of their comrades out of a combat zone south of Baghdad, military officials said Tuesday.


The four of them flew away in a two-person Apache, with two in the cockpit and two others clinging to the outside of the chopper.

They weren't clinging, they were secured to the outside of the helicopter, attached with their survival gear. Watch Fox, CNN and NBC for some footage and interviews.

After watching the video I could see this... I just copied what the news print said. Still a remarkable story, considering the continual gunfire.
