      Everything is rotting in the Danish kingdom!
      I don’t believe in chance. Apparently the order has become less, and that's all began to fall.

        In fact, this is not so far from the truth. Having recently gone on a business trip for a couple of weeks, I can say that everything is really shabby and patched up there: roads, buildings, cars. Practically nothing new is visible. The word "decrepit" is suitable. Of course, they try to keep everything in working order, but it can't go on forever, can it?

    Yeah ... such important information is direct. Now what ... about every fallen helicopter will be reported? And why exactly the USA? others do not fall? It feels like news for the sake of comments.

    This sometimes happens in aviation, so let them rejoice that they survived.

    Helicopters and planes are falling (for various reasons) in all countries. We can assume that the case is ordinary. The crew is alive and let them rejoice.

    silently observe the falling technique. Already found out that wheeled transport in exercises without parachutes does not fly.
