U.S. Air Force UH-1N Huey helicopter shot in Virginia
One crew member was reportedly injured after a military helicopter was shot at during training in Virginia, U.S. Air Force said.
On August 10, 2020, a UH-1N Huey had to perform an emergency landing after allegedly being struck by a bullet at 1,000 feet (300 meters) above the ground.
The helicopter was performing a routine military drill about 10 miles (16 kilometers) northwest of the airport when the incident happened. The crew had to land in Manassas, Virginia, before confirming that one crew member was injured.
The report indicated that the crew member was bleeding from their hand. According to authorities, the injury was not life-threatening and the crew member was treated and released from the hospital.
Whether the bullet or the emergency landing caused the wounding remains unclear as no further information has been revealed about the injury.
The U.S. Air Force and the FBI are working closely to unravel the circumstances behind the incident.
