Blackhawk Down


Recommended Posts

I'm surprised that, given the details of the area and the weather at that point in time, that operations were continued.


Blackhawks are IFR equipped usually, right?


I can only gather that they were trying to fly VFR.

I don't know much about NVG's but I would assume that they would be used in the dark. The Blackhawk went down at 7:00 am according to the link above. I have tried on a pair once when there was a couple of Griffons parked out on the ramp beside the hanger. They made a starlight only night seem like a overcast day.
