The USAF is launching an investigation into the ragheads that got squished in the landing gear of a C-17.
Why? Who cares?
This is nothing more than a ploy to soon release the name of the pilot and have his life ruined.
USAF is now investigating the incident which saw dozens of desperate Afghan civilians attempt to cling to the C-17 Globemaster III as it took off from Hamid Karzai International Airport after delivering equipment to aid the evacuation of Americans and allied personnel from the Afghan capital.
Footage captured by another civilian holding on to the side of the plane appears to show how the man was crushed to death as the landing gear was raised – his legs dangling sickeningly from the side of the aircraft.
‘The aircraft was surrounded by hundreds of Afghan civilians who had breached the airport perimeter,’ said USAF in a statement issued on Tuesday evening.
‘Faced with a rapidly deteriorating security situation around the aircraft, the C-17 crew decided to depart the airfield as quickly as possible. Human remains were discovered in the wheel well of the C-17 after it landed at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar.
‘The aircraft is currently impounded to provide time to collect the remains and inspect the aircraft before it is returned to flying status.’
Up to eight people were killed amid chaotic scenes at the airport on Monday, with several civilians plummeting hundreds of feet to their death as they failed to cling to the plane. Evacuations were paused as American and allied soldiers attempted to secure the airport perimeter, before resuming 90 minutes later.
