BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – A U.S. Coalition warplane reportedly crashed last night while it was conducting a mission over Iraq, Operation Inherent Resolve’s official media wing announced on Monday.

“One Coalition service member was killed and several injured when their aircraft crashed at approximately 10 p.m. GMT Aug. 19 in Iraq,” the CJTF-OIR statement began.

“The aircraft was conducting a partnered counterterrorism mission in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. All personnel were recovered by Coalition forces immediately following the incident, and three were evacuated for further treatment,” the statement continued.

The reason for the crash was not released.

“The deceased service member’s name and further details pertaining to the incident will be released by the pertinent national authorities,” the statement would add.

It was more likely warchopper like Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk or Boeing CH-47 Chinook…

Shot down by Isis but America will hide it just like Russia does when Isis kill their pathetic soldier or shot down their aircraft’s, it’s unbelievable how Isis still manage to fight and kill and kill it’s enemies despite not even have a chopper not to mention jets, Allah is indeed with His soldiers, us coalition is in Iraq to protect its puppet Shia Zionist roaches who they installed, Abadi is in white house right now massaging trumps feet

“One Coalition service member was killed and several injured when their aircraft crashed at approximately 10 p.m. GMT Aug. 19 in Iraq,”
=> Unless it’s an AC-130 or an armed KC-130 or some kind of civilian aircraft converted as a gunship, e.g. Iraqi Cessna AC-208 Caravan, Jordan Airbus AC-295, etc, or some B-52/B-1, it’s very unlikely to have been a warplane since these do not exceed 2 ppl onboard…

Helicopters are aircrafts and most of them can have, and in missions generally have more than 2 ppl.

Helicopters are surely aircraft, but, even for gunships, nobody will use “warplane” since they’re not “airplane” as they rely on a totally different technology.
This crash was a UH-60 Blackhawk, thus by essence, not a warplane.
7 SOFs were also wounded in the crash.

ISIS roaches are more likely to be transported by an IRGC Il-76, An-74, C-130, Harbin Y-12 or Mil Mi-17 in order to move them from Syria to e.g. Afghanistan or Yemen in the end… IMHO, they will preferably opt for C-130 and use the 747 refueller (Iran is the only country with 747 refuellers! The Shah paid big to get these customised), so they can make serious detours, use civilian call signs while nothing is more anonymous than a C-130 : everybody has some, moreover you can land them in the desert or on really harsh terrains, you can airdrop,… Read more »
