The World

El Salvador's military spokesman said that U.S. helicopters piloted by Americans twice flew into El Salvador from Honduras last month to pick up damaged Salvadoran army helicopters, not once as Washington acknowledged Tuesday. Maj. Carlos Aviles said that CH-47 Chinook helicopters flew in June 14 and June 18, the only such missions American pilots have flown in El Salvador. However, video recordings taken by ABC-TV on June 25 apparently show another U.S. Chinook ferrying a Huey UH-1H helicopter over a guerrilla-held town.
