A Boeing AH-64 Apache helicopter from the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade "Screaming Eagles" based at Fort Campbell, Kentucky was on a routine training mission when it went down about 12 miles south of Fort Campbell. The helicopter caught fire after it crashed. A four-wheel drive mini-pumper from the St. Bethlehem Volunteer Fire Department doused the fire.

FORSCOM have ordered a flight safety stand down as this was the third accident in recent days.
