U.S. Army pilot crashes chopper in Afghanistan


An Apache helicopter comes into view, swoops low over a coalition outpost, then crashes, but there's more.

The chopper then suddenly becomes airborne, and appears to be whirling sideways before crashing again.

The apache was one of two choppers watching over a patrol gathering supplies when it crashed. It was a $20 million chopper.
