    And they are correct. Army Blackhawk, looks like there were two of them, the other one set down nearby, right on the golf course at Breton Bay. Aux tanks both sides, so looks like they were going some distance.

    All the DC news channels are reporting it. I think it was near the third hole on the golf course.

    I saw three fly over L-Town.

    Wonder if it was one of them....

    Yep, BAYNET updated the report to say Helo was out of Ft Belvoir.. TPS flies Army Blackhawks as well (the green ones) so can understand the confusion as to where it came from.

    Reporting 2 unhurt and one to hospital..seems to be at odds with what baynet is reporting. (Cumming is a spokesman from Ft. Belvoir)

    Not sure I would want to get in a helicopter for a ride to the hospital after the helo I was just in crashed to the ground. Let me take my chances on 4 wheels.
