CNN just had video of it lying on it's side. Looked like a H-19, Coast Guard colors.


Edit, after seeing the pic, what I just posted is totally wrong.

MSNBC reports it was a civilian contractor for the Army.

I heard it was Coast Guard, but these days who knows...

Ill leave it up to the guys who know this stuff on here.

No, it doesn't look like USCG colors. It has ONE color in common, orange.

Please see the last page of this thread:

From the pics posted in the first thread, it looks like a Cougar. I highly doubt a Blackwater chopper would be bright orange anyway.

The story mentioned Danziger bridge, isn't that the same one where the shootings/contractor incident occurred?

Coast guard , looks like a Dauphin

I was just talking about this with my folks at dinner i was amazed there has not been more crashes
copters seem to crash often in good conditions and this is far from it and there sure are quite a few down there running 24/7

After reading the other post on this and news reports I'd have to say:
1. It's not CG
2. It's probably a Cougar.
3. It's not an oilfield chopper, none are painted that color down there.
4. Bush caused it to crash.

Dauphin has an enclosed tail rotor. Puma I think.
