Air Force Helicopter Shot At in Virginia

Welcome to the insane 21st Century. Air Force helicopter took ground fire over Virginia; crew member injured.

The UH-1N Iroquois helicopter, assigned to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, was soaring east of Shenandoah National Park around 1,000 feet when the incident occurred, an Air Force spokesman said Wednesday.

The gunfire damaged the aircraft, necessitating an emergency landing at nearby Manassas Regional Airport at 12:43 p.m., the spokesman said.

The injury is reported to be “nonthreatening.”

So why is someone shooting that the Air Force over Virginia? Is someone doing something illegal in Shenandoah National Park, or do they just hate the US military?
