Nine killed in crash of two US army Black Hawk choppers
Nine soldiers have been killed in a crash of two US army Black Hawk helicopters during a routine training mission over Kentucky, an army spokesperson says.
Crew members were flying two HH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, operated by the 101st Airborne Division, when the aircraft crashed late on Wednesday over Kentucky’s Trigg County, Fort Campbell’s public affairs office said.
A Fort Campbell spokesperson said nine soldiers were killed but provided no further information.
A news briefing was planned at the base for later in the day.
