William Blair, a former helicopter pilot, asks Saturday, November 8, 2003 how far the Pentagon can be believed



How many did survive the Chinook crash in Iraq?

click for viewTHINKING out loud as a former commercial chopper pilot, I wonder about the real death toll in that Chinook crash. After seeing pictures of the wreckage and reading the reports, it's hard to imagine that anyone survived.

Also, the Americans often exploit the luck of the survivors of such catastrophes with lots of publicity. So far I haven't seen any interviews, which begs the question of whether there is anyone to interview. Thirty-five deaths would be a lot harder to take than sixteen.
