    That is exactly what it did. They did not anticipate losing it. I am surprised they did not blow it up before abandoning it though.

    The tail section appears to be that of a Commanche.

    Looked like a modified Pave Low to me.

    This helicopter and the technology it may or may not have cannot fall into the wrong hands. This could be a matter of national security if it does. We have to get this back. I heard that there is a lot of concern about the Chinese potentially picking up this aircraft (or what's left of it). That would be a disaster...

    There's other photos out there...I saw one earlier this evening on one of the news shows that showed the the tail rotor section, I believe on the other side of the fence......It had a cowling surrounding the rear rotor blades, much like the Commanche......The Commanche program was halted a few years back.....This appears to be something unseen before......Appears to be stealth.

    Interesting stuff indeed.

    The Paki's will cough it up.......They're in deep shit right now with the US. Giving it up, or revealing tech to any other country would put them so deep in shit they would never crawl out.

    Agreed. You can't tell me that they didn't know Bin Laden was there. They'd better be in deep shit.
