A CH-47F Chinook has made a "hard landing" in east Afghanistan on Monday but there were no apparent casualties.
A few days later replacement team has prepared the damaged helicopter for evacuation, dismantling him with engines. But during air transportation on a pendant of CH-53E, the crew released a for an unknown reason "Chinook" and it fell to the ground from a height of several tens of meters. As a result, the helicopter fuselage was completely destroyed.
