Chain of Events: The Government Cover-Up of the Black Hawk Incident & the Friendly-Fire Death of Lt. Laura Piper
Joan L. Piper. On April 14, 1994, on a clear morning over the northern Iraq No Fly Zone, two USAF F-15 jets encountered two U.S. Army Black Hawk helicopters on a routine mission. Within minutes, the F-15s misidentified the helicopters & shot them down with fire-&-forget missiles. Although the Black Hawk downing was one of the worst air-to-air friendly fire incidents involving U.S. aircraft in mil. history, & despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, the AF would officially conclude that the pilots had made a reasonable mistake. One victim was 25-year-old intelligence officer Lt. Laura Piper. This book, written by her mother, tells the story of Lauraís final flight, the AFís mishandling of the invest., & the Piper familyís battle with govít. bureaucracies for accountability. Illus.
