Photos released of helicopter crash that killed Virginia Beach-based Navy SEALs
News

The Department of Defense has released pictures of the Chinook helicopter shot down in Afghanistan in August.

All 38 on board died, including 22 Navy SEALs.

It's the biggest one-day loss of life for the US in Afghanistan since the war began 10 years ago.

The photos are part of a 1,200 page military investigation that concluded: there was no wrongdoing.

But investigators did find that three hours into the combat operations, the Taliban had key advantages, such as the valley location, making the chopper more vulnerable.

It says the mission may not have been optimally planned, and changes are being instituted for future missions.
