American helicopter "Cobra" rammed drunk driver

20

On December 18, the South Carolina Highway Patrol announced that a drunk driver was thrown into jail after damaging a fully restored 1 AH-1967F Cobra attack helicopter in the region of half a million dollars.

A car driven by a drunk man turned off a highway at Columbia Airport and rammed a rotorcraft. As a result of the collision, no one was injured, the perpetrator of the incident was arrested.

The helicopter, nicknamed "Annie" in honor of actress Ann-Margaret for her "contribution to the morale of American troops around the world," was placed on the side of the highway as part of a demonstration held by the Veterans Charitable Foundation.

"Annie" served in the United States Army from 1967 to 2001. She spent five years in Vietnam. She participated in the Persian Gulf War and she was hit by a drunk driver

- one of the veterans commented with indignation on this event, saying that it would take a lot of manpower and resources to restore the helicopter.

According to a special program, the injured rotorcraft visited 150 schools and was able to see 100 students.

My heart hurts so much because of all the hard work we put into this helicopter. They don’t do it anymore ... this is ours история

- said program manager Lori Wicker.



The Mother of ALL Drunk Driving Accidents !! For every student that has seen "Annie" lets get a 1000,000 likes by Christmas !!!

      In the jump, not in the jump, but the man probably felt in flight. Therefore, he shot down a helicopter that turned up to him. wassat

        In the driver’s pocket, they found a check from the Security Service of the Russian Federation, and five packages of advertising posters from the March 2018 elections were in the trunk of the car))))))
        Oh yes! And in the cabin there was still a bottle of vodka and a drunk bear slept on an accordion))))))))))))))

    It’s still bullshit, there was a video where at the air base in the USA some stubbers drove in at night and drove between fighters. Bottom line - two fighters damaged, guards smoked bamboo, removing the vidos from the drone

    Nine comments and one gloating, no one knew that they drove the car and showed them to children to raise their spirits and patriotism. We got 24 ka from Afghanistan at the rembase, they restored it and put it on a pedestal, we also showed the children

        Is that all you heard in my comment? I meant that it’s a good idea to bring schoolchildren, military equipment that took part in hostilities for patriotic education, not all schoolchildren in Russia have the opportunity to visit for example Kubinka, even here on the site in the topic about Kubinka not all forum users have such an opportunity

          I mean, the ironic attitude to this incident is quite appropriate. And the lamentations of the American warriors are generally ridiculous, he feels sorry for the helicopter ... And the militaristic upbringing in isolation from morality leads to the appearance of cowardly sadists, leveling Dresden to the ground, throwing atomic bombs on defenseless cities, or poisoning millions of people with "orange".
