Question...did the pilots of these crashes survive?
Three accidents, one fatality in Australia, no fatalities in the two USA accidents.

I was speaking only of the crash and photo I posted about.

The Australian fatality had little/no training and hit a tree.
It was moot that he did so in an M912 vs. something else. Just sayin'.
