2 Blackhawks took off after duskl using the old mounted Night Vision goggles. After verticle takeoff, helicopters were side by side moving forward when they got too close to each other. The rotor blades of the two aircraft came in contact with each other literally cutting the tops off both helicopters causing them to crash violently to the ground.
