Accidente aviatice Aviaţie

7 Marines…

Cobra (AH-1W si AH-1Z) si Huey(UH-1Y), doua cate doua

…au decedat miercuri noaptea, in urma ciocnirii in aer a  elicopterelor in care se aflau la granita dintre statele California si Arizona.  Cele doua aeronave apartineau bazei de la Camp Pendelton si s-au ciocnit in aer in jurul orei locale 20.00.  Infanteristii marini de la bord (2 in Cobra, 5 in Huey) nu au supravietuit. Accidentul s-a perecut la doua mile vest de Yuma Training Range Complex.

 “We fly every single day for the most part and, you know, relatively mishap free so it’s … one of those rare and unfortunate occurrences that took place last night,” a declarat caporalul Steven Posey din 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, cu baza la Miramar, California.

RIP
