Narrative:
On 24 April 2003, while conducting a mission in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) in Afghanistan, 90-00217 suffered from the failure of the Number 1 Engine, followed by a severe hard landing. Due to the extent of the damage - which made the airframe uneconomical to repair, the airframe was later destroyed in-place to prevent use by the enemy. The structure of the airframe was damaged in multiple areas, to include most of the floor beams, bulkheads, and stringers. All four landing gear were damaged, as well as the rotor system. Of the 41 personnel on board, there were no injuries.
