“Black Hawk Down” is an official phrase used by the United States military to inform the crash of a Black Hawk helicopter during the Battle of Mogadishu.
The phrase became popular after the release of a book titled ‘Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War’. The book chronicles the U.S. military attempt of 1993 to capture a Somali warlord in Mogadishu, Africa; and the intense battle that resulted between U.S. forces on duty with the United Nations, against local militia and citizens.
Super64 was the second helicopter to crash on the Battle of Mogadishu.
