USAF E-11A down in Afghanistan

Recommended Posts

Initially reported as a Boeing 737-400 of Ariana Airlines, this is incorrect. It has now been correctly identified as a Bombardier E11a.

This appears to be the involved airframe:

The claim of "around 100 bodies" on the ground around the crash site are obviously wildly exaggerated, as the type operates with a typical crew of four, and is only able to carry up to 19 passengers...

There were two crew on board both killed. Coalition forces have recovered their remains. 

 

Data recorders have been recovered but the wreckage has been destroyed due to the sensitive nature of whats in there.
