A report I just read on the internet filed by a journalist who visited the helicopter crash site stated that it appeared intact except for signs of shots on its rear rotor. The tail number of helicopter is 95135 (i.e. 99-5135) ... as we can all tell from the photos, it is an AH
-64D Longbow Apache. 99-5135 is one of a batch that are remanufactured AH
I'm also surprised that it hasn't yet been "taken out" by the USAF
. I suppose the visuals on TV
were the first indicaton of where it had come to ground. Seems like they need to have a few more of those Predator drones with their Hellfire missiles flying around ...
