    Canadian naval helicopter crash in Greece.

    https://toronto.citynews.ca/2020/04/...diterranean-2/
    It looks like one of the recently delivered Cyclone ASW helicopters (Canadian spec Sikorsky S92) has crashed during a NATO exercise.
    Reports that the crew of 5 are missing.
    This is a huge tragedy for Canada, as well as a major blow for Naval Aviation there, struggling for years as their sea king fleet were literally falling from the skies.
    German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
    German 2: Private? I am a general!
    German 1: That is the bad news.

    I saw footage of the crash last night. The ejections were quite low at an acute angle.
