Turkish Military Helicopter Down, Many Casualties

Sat Nov 10, 2012 10:46 am

Sorry to add more bad news, with several crashes in the last few days.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-20278891

13 soldiers and 4 crew reported killed on a Sikorsky. Judging by the manufacturer and number of casualties, this must be an S-70 variant.

Best regards,

Jim

About 70 miles away. It is closer to Iraq than Syria.
