I'm sorry, but I find this article ever so amusing.

That's funny, and I'd be pretty upset myself.

80s,

I think it is a fake.

After searching I could only find it on a message board

Quote:
Friendly fire and not so friendly punches

A furious British helicopter pilot who came under friendly fire from American troops landed yards from them, leapt out and exchanged punches with a US Marine. The Chinnook pilot shouted at him: "When was the last time you saw a fucking Iraqi in a helicopter?"

The pilot and the marine had to be pulled apart as American troops advanced on the north of Baghdad, according to reports from US Central Command in Qatar.

British Military spokesman Group Captain Al Lockwood said: "I'm afraid it would be an RAF kind of thing to do. These guys are not known for tolerating fools gladly".

I received this in the mail. It was supposedly in the Mirror yesterday, though I could not find it online. This story is just too good to check too carefully.
