Britain's military chiefs should "hang their heads in shame", was a coroner's damning verdict, as he ruled that a catalogue of failures and a lack of crucial equipment was to blame for the death of a British solider in a minefield in Afghanistan.

Now I'm not an expert but sending a fucking Chinook into a minefield? To rescue someone?

well the problem apparently was they didn't have any helos with the rescue winches optional extra, so they could just hover and winch them up.

then they got one on the scene somehow but the downblast from the rotor set off more mines.
