  • Awesome vid of a Syrian Helicopter exploding.

    Just saw this new vid of a helicopter exploding. Syrian rebels are claiming it was an Syrian military helicopter.

    ...looked like a Mil-8 transport helo, which can carry munitions on stub wings, so could have been used in a gunship role...

    Wars suck big time.....i hope the crew died quickly....

      Yeah.... I was thinking Mi-8 also.
      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

          Mi-8 or Mi-17. And you really can't tell what caused it to come down.

            Since that Chinese video demonstration of some air force exercise turned out to have Top Gun footage in it, I'm more suspicious of this kind of thing.
