A Provisional IRA unit of the South Armagh Brigade shoot down a British Army helicopter near Silverbridge. The attack happened on the 23rd of June 1988. Also included is a news report on the incident - in it the reporter states that this was the first time the IRA shot down a British helicopter - this is incorrect as one had been shot down on the 17th February 1978 near Jonesborough in south Armagh, killing the side-door gunner Iain Corden-Lloyd.
