The Nation

March 13, 1986

The Army decided to temporarily ground both of its newest helicopters, the UH-60 Blackhawk and the AH-64 Apache, because of safety concerns. It was the second time in less than a year that the fleet of Blackhawks had been grounded and the second time in a month that the Apache fleet was ordered out of the air. The Blackhawk grounding was prompted by the crash of one of the helicopters Tuesday at Ft. Rucker, Ala., during a routine training flight.
