TRAINING MISSION TRAGEDY OFF VIRGINA COAST
UPDATE: 2 Killed in Helicopter Crash
Breaking this hour, more trouble for the military on our East coastal region as a helicopter filled with young trainees crashes along Virginia coast, killing 1 trainee and sending 4 others to the hospital, FOX News reports:
Two MH-53 Sea Dragons were flying on a training mission when one of them had to make an emergency landing. The second Sea Dragon dropped a raft into the water to help the crew members, while the Coast Guard cutter Shearwater and two MH-60S helicopters also assisted in the recovery…
This comes only 1 day after another fatal helicopter crash in Norfolk County in England:
On Tuesday, four crewmen were killed when their HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter went down during a training mission in the Cley coastal area of Norfolk County in England.
These incidents beg the question: What’s going on with our helicopters lately? Is it the parts being made in enemy nations, a bad idea all around? This Politichick wants to know!
These are both breaking stories, for details as they are released follow the story here.
And pray for the families and survivors. Keep the faith, bros, in all things courage, and no substitute for VICTORY!
