Two RAF dead in Afghan helicopter crash named
Footage ‘shows RAF helicopter crash aftermath after it smashed into security balloon’
Is anyone else suspicious about this story? The video (one of several of the supposed incident on You Tube) shows nothing but a (still tethered?) security balloon (blimp) ‘drifting’ slowly downward after allegedly being struck by the RAF helicopter.
Largest tethered blimps
ever used in the U.S. military operations
Spokesman say the blimp ‘was severed from its cable’ but it appears to me as if it is being winched down – or it’s a very ‘no wind’ day. Was there a crash at all? Is this just more fake tragedy, especially of the military, to garner support and sympathy for what is increasingly being seen as a mercenary armed forces for Israeli conflicts?
TAP – They usually call it a crash to cover up a ‘shot down’ reality. That’s to maintain the morale of your own side, and to stop your enemies from getting a publicity coup. You might wonder if Russia has recently supplied any anti-aircraft missiles to discourage anyone who’s thinking of deploying helicopters in Ukraine.
