Five Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters and one tandem-rotor Boeing Co. Chinook chopper landed in a field near the village of Gruta and asked the locals for directions when the crews couldn't figure out where they were due to heavy fog.

The helicopters were coming back from Saber Junction exercises in Lithuania to their temporary base in Miroslawiec near the German border, according to Polish army spokesman Lt. Col. Artur Golawski. Twelve aircraft made an unscheduled landing on their way from Lithuania yesterday and the day before in what’s a “standard procedure” in poor visibility, he said by phone.
