Helicopter dropped ammunition container to school in USA

59
Another ammunition incident occurred in the United States of America. The other day it was reported that in the state of North Dakota during the delivery of ammunition to one of the landfills a container with grenades was “lost”. The incident occurred even 1 May, but the grenades could not be found until now.


Today, the American television station Fox News publishes material that says that another container of ammunition fell from a helicopter. It is stated that a military helicopter transported the container, and that one (during the flight of the helicopter over one of the schools in the Texas city of El Paso) broke down. Eventually, the ammunition fell on the roof of the primary school.

Helicopter dropped ammunition container to school in USA


It is stated that the ammunition was transported by air from the Fort Bliss military base. Two versions of what happened are considered: pilot error and technical problems aboard the helicopter. The helicopter itself after the incident landed safely.

There are no victims and injuries in El Paso. Ammunition collected by soldiers and local police officers. The type of ammunition is not reported.

American human rights activists tried to raise the question of why the deadly cargo is transported by air, not only over residential areas of the city, but also over children's objects. The Pentagon said that "this issue will be dealt with."

          It is good that this "manna from heaven" from American warriors, which they dropped to American children from a helicopter almost on their heads, did not explode!
          And then after all, they know how to drop their military tools from bombs to bounce!

          What other facts do you need? It is reported that ammunition collectedIt’s an extraordinary matter, it has reached the federal level and has even been internationally publicized. Do you really think that the local sheriff and the military command are just girls and they won’t be able to calculate and take from toddlers ammunition, if the number of collected does not converge with the number of ammunition in the box ..?

            So you already decide whether they are assembled or not. And it’s not clear whether you can be happy for the local sheriff or you need to wish him good luck.

              I do not need to be determined, because the facts are very clear.
              All the ammunition that fell on the school is collected. The container from S. Dakota is a completely different incident and you can’t put it on the kids by any means, because S. Dakota is on the border with Canada, and Texas is adjacent to Mexico and between these states thousands of miles.

                  It is noted that this happened on Thursday in the middle of the day, a helicopter took off from Fort Bliss military base. When the incident occurred, classes at the school had already ended, and the students went home. The police quickly responded and collected all the ammunition dropped from the helicopter, after which they were transferred to the military base.

    That there is a container with ammunition on the roof of the school, they lose nuclear bombs. But on May 1, the box with grenades was "lost",
    however, grenades have not been discovered so far
    it means they will soon emerge at the next disassembly in some school (college).

        Pasha, that's what bothers me. The military budget is almost a billion, and ammunition boxes made of plywood, drawn by wire. In theory, when falling from a helicopter to the roof of the school, it should fall apart.

          You do not confuse green with soft. “A budget of almost a billion” and “spend almost a billion” are not the same thing, pockets tend to “absorb” the lion's share of the budget.

    It is stated that a military helicopter transported the container, and that one (during a helicopter flight over one of the schools in the Texas city of El Paso) fell apart. Ammunition eventually fell on the roof of an elementary school.

    For schoolchildren, the thing is necessary, but it’s too early for elementary school.

    According to the mind, it is necessary to drop the head of the Pentagon and the helicopter carrier, without a parachute, from the helicopter and in a deserted area - there would be no more such errors.
