Dramatic footage of an AH-64D Apache helicopter crashing into the sea.
On Sept. 20, at around 09.00AM LT a Greek Army Apache helicopter crashed into the Aegean
The AH-64D helicopter crashed for reasons unknown in the waters of the Strimonikos Gulf near Asprovalta, in northern Greece while taking part in SARISA 2016 exercise.
The footage below shows the helicopter crashing into the sea and capsizing. Fortunately, both crew members escaped safely.
The helicopter is believed to belong to either the 1st or 2nd Battalion of Attack Helicopters from Volos, central Greece.
This the third loss of D-model out of 12 initially procured by the Greek Army.
The incident reminds a famous U.S. Army AH-64 crash in Afghanistan or the Italian Army NH-90 helicopter that crashed into the Bracciano Lake, north of Rome, in June 2008. One of the pilots was killed, the other two crew members were rescued from the water after the helicopter almost disintegrated in the impact.
H/T @robotpig for sending the link to the video.
So who does NATO defend when Greece and Turkey go to war with each other?
The only difference being that we are not discussing about asymmetric opponents here. In any case the debt discussion is absurd does not make any sense: a state exists first and foremost in order to protect its citizens. if this can not be delivered no reason to have a state (or debt)
they have said that the conditions seem very similar to this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUYR-MXXLyc can happen even to the best….
