Narrative:
A NATO helicopter crashed Thursday in eastern Afghanistan but no one was hurt, the US-led coalition said. The crew was recovered after the crash, which occurred in Parwan province.

NATO said the cause of the incident was under investigation. The Taliban claimed its fighters shot down the aircraft, but the coalition said that initial reports indicated no militant activity in the area.

The Apache was part of a two-ship returning to Bagram when the tai-rotor separated from the a/c causing the hard landing. The damaged a/c was recovered later the same day by a combined ground recovery team from the 10th CAB and the 101st Abn's 584th Maintenance Company.
