A Pakistani official said on Tuesday the government may let very interested Chinese officials see the remains of a secret U.S. stealth helicopter which was abandoned and mostly destroyed during a U.S. Special Forces raid of Osama bin Laden's compound last week.
We might let them [the Chinese] take a look, the official told ABC News.
The official said the U.S. had already asked for the wreckage back.
Photos released shortly after the raid show the rear rotor of a helicopter remained while the rest of the helicopter's body was apparently destroyed.
The United States has not commented on the helicopter. A cloth-like cover was also seen. Experts weighing in on the design of the tail rotor's cover have noted that it may have been made in such a way as to go undetected by radar.
The helicopters in the mission were used to cross the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan. The helicopter which was ultimately destroyed had a hard landing. Another advantage of the design, experts say, is that it may have reduced noise.
