The Canadian Ch-47 Chinook transport chopper accident occurred during night operations by the Quebec-based Royal 22nd Regiment in the Horn of Panjwaii. Insurgents were not blamed in the incident.
None of the injuries were considered serious or life-threatening at this time, said Maj. David Devenney, the Task Force Kandahar spokesman. Among several dozen passengers was a Canadian journalist who was uninjured.
The wounded were flown by medevac helicopter to the U.S. navy-run Role 3 Hospital at Kandahar Airfield. The crash was secured by Canadian and other coalition forces.
The Chinook turned on its side as it landed, Devenney said. An assessment was being conducted to decide whether the aircraft was salvageable, he said. Initial reports suggested that it had been heavily damaged.
The Helicopter was recovered to a Coalition airbase as an underslung load of a USMC HMH-461 CH-53E Super Stallion. Later the helicopter was written off.
