Hot-dogging and showing off appear to be behind the crash of a U.S. Apache attack helicopter in a snowy
base in Afghanistan, caught on a video now going viral in the Internet.
According to British newspaper The Daily Mail, the video appeared online several days ago and the military is investigating the incident, which reportedly claimed no lives.
A spokesman for U.S. forces in Afghanistan told ABC News the video was filmed on February 6 in Paktika province.

Is this what we send our military over seas to do? Play around in helicopters that cost millions of dollars like its some kind of joke.

Geez. I can understand the need to boost morale, but don't do it with a multi-million dollar aircraft and definitely don't endanger lives.
I hope his buddies give him crap for the rest of his carrer...I wonder if that is coming out of his check?

He actually did quite well in the first round.
But the second dip unfortunately turned into a disaster.
He probably ejected before the Apache hit the snow.
