Black Hawk Crash

U.S. Soldiers from the South Carolina Army National Guard work to prepare a UH-60 Black Hawk from Detachment 2, Company F, 1-171st General Support Aviation Battalion, South Carolina Army National Guard, for sling-load movement to McEntire Joint National Guard Base, Eastover, S.C., Dec. 7, 2014. The Black Hawk made an emergency landing in an open field Dec. 3, 2014, due to a main rotor blade malfunction in Columbia, S.C. The Black Hawk was released by the Accident Review Board for recovery and was being transported via sling-load under a South Carolina Army National Guard CH-47 Chinook helicopter from Detachment 1, B-Company, 2-238th General Support Aviation Battalion, South Carolina Army National Guard Army Aviation Support Facility in Greenville, S.C. The cause of the main rotor malfunction remains under investigation. (U.S. Army National Guard Photo by Staff Sgt. Di Giovine/Released)
