Brian Williams Told David Letterman His Helicopter Story | The Daily Caller

“We were in some helicopters. What we didn’t know was we were north of the invasion. We were the northern-most Americans in Iraq. We were going to drop some bridge portions across the Euphrates so the Third Infantry could cross on them. Two of our four helicopters were hit by ground fire, including the one I was in. RPG and AK-47.”

Asked what the helicopter’s altitude was when it was hit, Williams said, “We were only at a hundred feet doing a hundred forward knots because we had these massive pieces of bridge beneath us on slings.”
