MARAWI CITY  (MindaNews / 28 November) Two Philippine Air Force (PAF) Vietnam War vintage Huey helicopters figured in two separate accidents while trying to airlift wounded soldiers during operations in Lanao del Sur against the Dawlah Islamiyah militants, locally known as Maute Group, on Thursday and Friday.

Maj. Gen. Gene Ponio, commander of the 1st Infantry Division said a pilot and a crewmember of a Huey UH-1H helicopter that crashed Friday morning were injured and safely evacuated.

this one has a conflicting report... in other news outlet, it says "emergency landing"

and if we will follow the SOP - the UH should be grounded by now if it was indeed a "crashed"

i hope AFP or PAF can set the record straight
