Three accidents in less than two weeks has forced the Army to issue a four-day grounding of its US-based Apache and Black Hawk helicopters.
It's only Thursday, but the US military has suffered three separate, non-fatal, aviation-related incidents. A total of ten injuries have been reported.
Lockheed Marin is set to dramatically expand its reach in the helicopter market, with the purchase of Sikorsky Aircraft, manufacturer of the UH-60 Blackhawk.
A US Army Blackhawk crashed in heavy fog last night, leaving its crew of four LA National Guardsmen and seven MARSOC Marines missing and presumed dead.
