        Blackhawks are like $10 hookers... Garanteed to go down.

        Christ they even made a movie titled the same.

        You enlist in the defence force, you are put in harms way, things like this happen.

        Choppers aren't the most reliable of transports, hear about them crashing fairly frequently in the oil and gas game.

            Because Blackhawks are standard on Kanimbla. Kanimbla is a helicopter carrier.

            If you can... you MUST!

              Never good news, thoughts with the families and also the unit members and crew, guts ya when you lose someone............
              There is no such thing as an accident, people make mistakes............ the trick is to have enough space to make your own, then identify and avoid others making theirs.

              Anyone coming up from behind is either breaking the law............. or enforcing it, the first have to look to rule No. 1, the second have my full attention and courtesy.

              "HORSEPOWER is how fast you hit something"

              "TORQUE is how far you go through it"

              Rule No. 1 : NEVER make contact with a vehicle in front of you, it doesn't matter what they are doing, it is YOUR fault........... geddit!!!!.

                The blackhawks are a fantastic helicopter that is far superior in performance and safety than any other helo, accidents happen , and that is all that this is

                RIP to the Two diggers and my thoughts are with their families.

                    drkside i knew most of the guys from 1996 and tex knew them all and to see another one go down with the guys on them is not good at all.



                    RIP to the guys. The familes know the guys died doing what they were trained and were very proud of what they do.


                    words cant express the loss.





                    and as for helo's

                    i would prefer to be in a blackhawk any day to a seahawk.....if i want a boat anchor i would pick a seahawk...there has been more than one soldier/sailor lost on a seahawk

                              Poor bastards, never good.

                              As to the missing soldier, I hope they find him sitting at a local bar downing a beer.

                              Thoughts go out to all those affected.
