US UK friendly fire video in the wild

this is one of the most chilling pieces of video footage I have ever seen, we’re used to the the American pilots in these incidents being portrayed as callous gung ho flyboys acting with impunity dealing death from the sky and  in this case  these  American airman have been described as rogue pilots.  this video really puts the lie to that as what clearly killed  L/Cpl Matty Hull was a catastrophic breakdown in ICT and the two A 10 pilots are genuinely affected by the enormity of their actions.

the fact that they really shouldn’t be there makes it all the more poignant.
