    Something in NATO has recently increased mortality. In the process, it is associated with an increase in flying hours. It looks like our summer-autumn situation.

      That's interesting! There is a helicopter, there is a raft but no people! Only the "kraken" dragged!

          The NATO exercises are fraught with catastrophes ... and no one can find the Malaysian Boeing (first) (there is also not far from the zone of loss from radar, the USA fired) ....
          .... "there is a raft but no people!" - cleaned up the witnesses

      I think the soldiers are not to blame for the fact that their government is licking the United States. Losing living people is always bad.

      Here's a more detailed account: In the Atlantic Ocean, the Spanish Super Puma military helicopter crashed from Mauritania to the Canary Islands. On board were three people. The Spanish authorities are conducting a search and rescue operation.

      AR Agency reports that a Spanish helicopter participated in exercises in Senegal, and landed in Mauritania for refueling.

      The Moroccan Air Force participating in the rescue operation said they saw a raft and signal lights in the ocean.

      Later, Spanish sources told El Pais that the crew were alive, but there was no information about their condition.

      The causes of the helicopter crash remain unknown.
