Royal Marines Strap Themselves To Apache Wings To Look For Missing Comrade

Wow, this is incredibly brave, and also sounds incredibly dangerous:

Royal-Marines-Apache-Wing-Strapped-Rescue-Mission“The military lacks light helicopters that would normally be used for this sort of work.  It will be another seven years before something suitable is available.

I’ll repeat that for emphasis – It will be another seven years before something suitable is available.”  *smh* bureaucracy at its finest.  Dealing with that must be so frustrating for everyone involved.

There’s a detailed account of the events on Dailymail.

That’s really sad that Lance Corporal Ford didn’t make it out alive.  I can’t even imagine what a physical and emotional rollercoaster every day in a war zone must be.

Thoughts?
