What's going on?
>The chief of staff of the US Army has grounded all Army aviators not involved in critical missions following two recent helicopter crashes that left 12 soldiers dead.
>The order from Army Chief of Staff James McConville grounds the aviators “until they complete the required training,” according to the Army.
>“The safety of our aviators is our top priority, and this stand down is an important step to make certain we are doing everything possible to prevent accidents and protect our personnel,” McConville said in a statement.
>Army pilots, at McConville’s direction, “will focus on safety and training protocols to ensure our pilots and crews have the knowledge, training and awareness to safely complete their assigned mission.”
>The safety stand down comes after Thursday’s mid-air collision of two AH-64 Apache helicopters near Fort Wainwright, Alaska, that killed three soldiers and wounded another.
>Last month, nine soldiers were killed when two HH-60 Blackhawks collided during routine night training near Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
The usual Army shit: somebody fucks up, the Army decides that it hasn't hammered the importance of not being retarded into the men hard enough, and it plays fuck-fuck games until it is once again confident that everyone knows how to not be retarded.
>until it is once again confident that everyone knows how to not be retarded.
and this, of course, is just an illusion. the illusion lasts only until the next retard inevitably does something retarded because you really just can't get safety up to 100% in an organization as large as the military.
>“Here’s a 150 point PowerPoint we’re all going to sit through slide by slide while Private Peacock interprets for those of you who need a sign language interpreter and Privates Dumbshit and McPoyle provide comic relief.”
Probably a diversity hire flying the helicopters because they are brown skinned or female or some shit they got the job despite being under qualified and having poor reaction assessments
>Very high optempo for no real reason
>Pilots and maintenance people overworked
>Everyone's getting sloppy because of it
Gotta make them slides green and get those hours in though
Your other thread is still up, slide-kun.
I'm glad that antivax retards are filtered out of the military. Spoiler warning, crashes are part of military aviation and vaccinations are older than even that and do an important part by letting covid deaths of unvaccinated increase global IQ.
lol I'm gonna need a link to this mess of an article now
A mix of collective punishment and ass covering by pretending lack of training was the problem.
>Recruitment at an all time low
>"Hmm, how can we up our numbers?"
Enter the alphabet mafia. It's literally that deep, that's it.
I dont want to believe this shit man, its fucking killing me.
> look at all these goys who fell for my activation schizophrenia
> no I will not acknowledge the literal billions of people who didn't
>Whining about Navy being gay
America's big gay polesmoking manlove Navy has been the global guarantor of free trade and relatively peaceful hegemony for 80 years. Why is it suddenly a problem now?
Link. The. Article. gay.
He doesn't want to because then you can pick it apart. Posting a screencap lets him pretend that he actually has something.
NTA, but here's the link:
Link the article
it is amazing how a thread about aviation safety turns into vax schizophrenia
It’s not a thread about aviation safety, it’s a thread about “America bad”.
How many times are you going to make this thread?
It doesn't stop the burning fuel in Sevastopol, you know
This retard posted the same picture in another thread with a different caption. Nobody cares about the two helicopter accidents.
The US holds the most attack helicopters in the world. Fuck you.
Do Russia or China have safety standards?
Got a source that their's any practical difference between the two?
>What's going on?
That's what they're figuring out while everybody is grounded. It could be training lapses, a batch of malfunctioning parts, deliberate sabotage by an enemy, or random chance. Until they do an investigation, all that is just conjecture
I think Apaches are beautiful. I want to see one in real life. Are there any museums or tourist locations in Texas where we can see them?
