    Description: On the After Action Report it appears that there should have been a fourth helicopter in this flight.  Information on aircraft 2 is missing there seems to be a single word in that space, but I do not understand the note.  A copy of that part of the AAR has been attached to this Event.   Nik
    The word could be "down". Nik
