Army Helicopters Hit By Drone Over Staten island according to Officials

The FBI is investigating after a drone hit a pair of Army helicopters over Staten Island earlier this week.

Army officials said that two Blackhawk helicopters, with the 82nd Airborne Division out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, were damaged after coming in contact with the drone about 500 feet above Midland Beach just after dark on Thursday.

The impact dented one helicopter, cracked a window and damaged its rotor blades. It was enough damage, Army officials said, that the helicopters had to land in nearby Linden, New Jersey.
