Three US soldiers died in a crash of the Army National Guard helicopter in Mendon, New York. The Black Hawk helicopter crashed during a ‘routine training mission’ in the evening (an ordinary ‘routine mission’ amid the inauguration of Joe Biden), according to the state’s National Guard.

The UH-60 Black Hawk medical evacuation helicopter involved in the incident was based at the Army Aviation Support Facility at Rochester International Airport.

The incident is under investigation.

The stupid deadbeat loser fuckers have lost an Apache and a Black Hawk in a 24 hour window that we know of. Imagine the losses when the real resistance picks up. 3 less garbage that we know of.

Arch Bungle

I’d have loved to salvage the parts from that bird. No use for the pig meat though.

Frankly, 3 less obese child killing pigs. Good riddance.

Crash hawk…

Garga

Crash Hawk Blown? Not in Somalia this time.

Poor their families. Parents and children if they had any.

UH-60 suffers from micro torque loss, its a 40+year old design, instead of fixing the problem they did a software upgrade so warnings wont go off in case it happens, most the time its only a fraction of a second, you wont even notice, but other times you simply fall out of the air.
Its especially critical at high altitudes with less O2.
Made in the U.S., with Pride…

A friend of mine trained US pilots to fly blackhawks for a while. He said they were ‘not a forgiving aircraft ‘ and that US pilots with a typical gung ho attitude were a danger to themselves and the passengers and crew

Lone Ranger

Totally routine…
Nothing to see here.

Frank

Frankly, expect more “crashes” and “hard landings” in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria soon. All “routine” :)

What about 85000 dead chinese in 2008 earthquake lol.

Arch Bungle

1.5 million Indians died from starvation and 2.1 to 3 million including
deaths from epidemics during the Bengal famine.

While serving their White Raj British masters.

How come Hindu fanatics couldn’t save India from that?

Too busy worshipping cows?

Proud Hindu

10 million chinese died during mao time lol.

Arch Bungle

10 million (about one third of the then population of Bengal) Indians died in the Great Bengal Famine Bihar, Western Bengal while Hindu fanatics were busy serving their White Raj masters.

Were the brahmins too busy raping their cows to save India?

well considering how many Mi-8’s and 17’s have crashed yea it is stuff like this happens all the time in my home nation we have lost more troops due to those flying trash can’s (Mi-8’s and Mi-17’s) then we have in both iraq and afghanistan combined…

Condor

Are you Indian? India seems to have set the record in crashing Russian airplanes and helicopters.

NITRAM28

no not even close i am from europe my nation is a NATO state and we maintain out choppers well issue is that the helicopter itself is the problem it has killed the most imout of ppl of any other model in history.

Condor

Quite a few old Warsaw Pact states still do operate Russian equipment and have had issues in terms of maintenance and reliability. I only mentioned India, because it has crashed over half of its MIGS, Sukhois and MI-8/17. They lost three Russian aircraft in one skirmish with the Pakistanis just recently. I believe it was MIG21 Bison, a SU-30 MKI and a MI-17 chopper.

850000chinese mamtu in 20080earthquake.Hindu and american enjoy ;)Karma is real ;)

Cool disney story Trollstoy.
Too bad it aint true.

NITRAM28

ummmm what exactly is a “disney story” in my statment? Its very easy to just google the safety record of the Mi-8 sireis for helis my nation’s military has lost over 30 good men and women to those flying trashcans.

Lone Ranger

Even SEAL and Delta are using Russian helos in Afghanistan.
UH-60 production number 4000+
Mi-8/Mi-17 30,000+
Yet its called crash hawk for a reason…
Better luck next time…

NITRAM28

ummmmmmm you do realise the Mi-8 is ainchent right? It was developed in the 1960’s so no shit alot are made but not even close to 30.000 acording to internet sources ~17.000 have been made give or take.
Oh and btw SEAL and Delta force operatives use the Mi-8 in rear ocaisons due to its larger payloade capasity but that still dosent make its horrible safety record any better.

Lone Ranger

It has a much better safety record than the crash hawk.
Mi-8/17 have a total production number of 30,000+
And still in production…
Crash hawk was designed in the early 70s.
Not much younger yet still inferior.
Also Mi-8/17s still have major refit programs, the crash hawk couldnt even iron out the micro torque loss issue in 40+ years.
Over and out…

NITRAM28

what part of Mi-8 saries you dont understand?
But ok for arguments sake lets take in both ofc they will be produced more since the both are used for civil and military uses and not to mention its over a decade older then the UH-60 (also idk why you are directly compareing them to echother since they are not in the same weight class)
but ok lets take just the Mi-17’s safety record into account 45 crashes since 2000 vs the UH-60’s 32 crashes form 1981 till 2021……for the love of god use google its not illegal you know…and keep in mind thats just the Mi-17 and that is only form the year 2000…now what did you say about the “crash hawk” again? if the UH-60 is a “crash hawk” then the Mi-17 and Mi-8 are flying coffins.

Lone Ranger

UH -60 had 80 crashes in Iraq alone.
Better luck next time Trollstoy ?

NITRAM28

i am starting to think you dont know how to read i said UH-60 not HH-60 or S-70 airframes….but it also seems like you can count ether but also the fact that your source littearly states
“This information is added by users of ASN. Neither ASN nor the Flight Safety Foundation are responsible for the completeness or correctness of this information.” Is not really that =confidence building ether

but i took a look and you do realise most of these are not even actually crashes but hard landings or crash ladings…and whats even better is the fact that less then 50 UH-60’s have crashed in the last years while this page has over 133 confirmed crashes form 2010 to 2020 https://helihub.com/tag/Mil+Mi-8+accidents/

face the facts the Mi-8 is a quite a bad desingh for safety the only reason its used is cuz its cheap and simple.

Lone Ranger

Truth hurts try to handle it Trollstoy ?
My link speaks for itself…

NITRAM28

“This information is added by users of ASN. Neither ASN nor the Flight Safety Foundation are responsible for the completeness or correctness of this information.” indeed it does speak for itself ;) (i responded to the wrong comment thats why their is double one).

Lone Ranger

UH-60 and variants all have the same engines and airframe by the eay, hence the same unreliable tincan.
Bye ?

NITRAM28

well fallowing that logic the Mi-8/17 is the worst helicopter in history since it has by far the most imout of crashes and fatalitys of any helicopter in history.

“This information is added by users of ASN. Neither ASN nor the Flight Safety Foundation are responsible for the completeness or correctness of this information.” indeed it does speak for itself ;)
