Default Syrian Arab A320 Midair with Helicopter

Happened to be stumbling around PPRuNe and saw this.



Jesus H. Christ on a crutch. What a save, although the Chopper augured in. Occurred on 9-20-2012.

A Syrian Arab Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration YK-AKF performing flight RB-501 from Damascus to Latakia (Syria), was climbing through FL120 out of Damascus when the main rotor of a military helicopter clipped the upper half of the vertical stabilizer and rudder off the airliner. The helicopter crashed, the A320 was able to return to Damascus for a safe landing. The helicopter crew died, there were no injuries aboard the A320, the A320 received substantial damage.
