    When I went thru Redeye training back in the late '70's, they told us there were 6 of them lost here in the US.

    Oh that SAM, I thought maybe Portland was going to have to keep an eye out for our 17 year old high school boys again.

    For the video, search for "helicopter shot down, Bulgarian executed in Iraq."

    Ya hopefully it won't be around NYC. La Guardia, JFK, and Newark airports are all relatively close together with tons of daily air traffic.
