    Luckily, the "Huey" is not known to just fall out of the sky from a single bullet hole being poked through it.

    "One crew member in the helicopter was injured but has since been treated and released from the hospital, according to authorities. The initial findings of the investigation show that the helicopter was struck by a bullet, causing some damage to the aircraft, though it landed safely, the Air Force said".

    Seems the chopper was injured as well.:mrgreen:

    Several variables but not an impossible shot if the shooter knew what he was doing. Or he was just damn lucky. At least until the feds find him.

    I always thought that hazardous duty pay was appropriate for the flyer boys and girls that are flying around DC. Sad state of affairs, these days.
