They had a special news report breaking through on the radio today about this. I go through this base on my way to a vaction spot in the summer. Imagine going down a highway witth trees on both sides. All of a sudeen three blackhawks pop up over the trees by 20 feet and come at you at what seems like 500 MPH. It was amazing! I'd sure hate to be an Iraqi soldier. Thank god for the US military.

“There was one on the bottom and another helicopter flying on top of it. The one on the bottom’s nose was up and the one on the top was tipping down,”
Shouldn't take too long for them to figure this one out. Looks like a formation flying incident. It's a shame for the loss of lives but a neccessary evel of being ready to defend our country.
Bless those families.

Doesn't sound like a mid air - ( iassume you ment that by formation flying incident).
There are only 2 officers (Cpt and CW3) in the list of names. All the rest are enlisted.
Therefore Only one aircraft was involved.
Sounds like Maintenance or they hit something, like wires or trees.
