Aircraft Down

A helicopter has gone down near the Pakistan border. This has already been on the news, but there are some inaccuracies being reported.

CNN's website has a pretty sketchy report, but the picture of the type of aircraft is accurate. The picture on the Fox News website is NOT accurate but the story is much more comprehensive.

This is not a "Big Windy" Chinook, all of our Task Force Sabre friends are in Blackhawks and Apaches, and all of our LTF folks are on the ground.

There's not much more that can be said right now except that, as Fox News reports, there is reason to believe that this is still a rescue mission.

There are some very urgent and difficult actions underway right now and our continued prayers are with these folks.

Thanks for this. I have a friend whose step-bro was on the chopper... it's been a rough day for her family...

We're all praying.

My prayers for a safe and quick rescue are with those on the ground....both the search teams and the recon team. My deepest condolences go out to the families of those that perished.

Thanks for the update from the area. Stay safe
