U.S. Military reports two helicopter crashes in as many days
- Yesterday A U.S. military helicopter crashed on the eastern coast of England, killing all four of the crew members on-board, during a low-level training exercise taking place near RAF Station Lakenheath.
- Today A U.S. Navy helicopter crashed off the coast of Virginia. Though it was originally believed all five of the air transport’s crew members were alive and accounted for, updated reports have confirmed one crew member died several hours after being rescued and that another is still missing at this time. The military has yet to identify a cause for either crash at this time.
