Very sorry to hear about this, and extremely glad to hear the crew survived; (wishing them a speedy and full recovery)

Glad that the crew survived!
Any word on what type of mission the crew were flying? Night low level maybe?
I´ve read, that the Tiger detachment in Afghanistan is grounded as well. How many are currently based in Afghanistan?

Quoting Flying-Tiger (Thread starter):
all remaining 28 GAF Tigers have been grounded for the time being.

Not anymore. While the reason for the crash remains to be unclear, current results of the investigation make it reasonable to resume flight, Bundeswehr says.

Fortunately, the pilots were only slightly wounded.

On a side note:

This is the only picture of the chrash site. Apparently, MAD (Bundeswehr's intelligence service) managed to keep journalists from taking pictures of the 'dismantled' heli.
