BAGHDAD, Iraq March 24 —
Iraqi television Monday showed two men said to have been the crew
of an Apache helicopter forced down during heavy fighting the night
before in central Iraq.
The two wore cream pilot overalls and did not speak to the camera
but appeared confused. They turned their heads and looked in
different directions as the camera filmed them.
Iraq's state television later showed a collection of documents
arrayed on the floor. They included what looked like ID cards and a
VISA credit card.

helicopter is reportedly in a field near Karbala, Iraq, 50
miles south of Baghdad. At the Pentagon, Air Force Master Sgt.
Grant Windsor confirmed that one Apache was missing. He could
give no details on the incident and said he had no information
on the status of the pilots. (AP Photo/Iraqi TV via
