British lose a Chinook in Afghanistan

One of the precious Chinook helicopters operated by the British in Afghanistan has been destroyed after a possible Taleban attack. The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing over Helmand after the engine caught fire. None of the crew were harmed and they were rescued. The Chinook was destroyed to prevent it falling into enemy hands. That was an 1/8th of the British Chinook force in Afghanistan lost in 1 go.
