A video of an apache helicopter crash disaster in Afghanistan made its way onto the Internet on Thursday, prompting officials to start an investigation for possible criminal charges.
According to the Washington Post, International Security Assistance Force officials believe the video was from Feb. 6 depicting a U.S. Army AH-64 Apache gunship in Marzak, Afghanistan where U.S. troops were stationed, though the description on the YouTube video reads it was located in Sharana.
Officials are investigating the video to find out whether or not the two pilots were trying to show off, as reported by the U.S. News & World Report.
The video shows an apache helicopter flying over an outpost before a disastrous crash, flip and spin followed by another crash, in which the two pilots and witnesses on the ground survived.
A spokesperson for the ISAF told ABC News that the pilot was most likely doing a return to target to explain the low swoop, which most likely was a show for witnesses on the ground, according to officials.
