Tre piloti uccisi nell'incidente dell'elicottero della Guardia Nazionale dell'Idaho Black Hawk

Tre membri della Guardia Nazionale dell'Esercito dell'Idaho sono morti durante un'esercitazione quando il loro elicottero Black Hawk si è schiantato nei pressi di Boise martedì, ha detto la Guardia Nazionale.

The three were all trained pilots participating in a routine training flight, a National Guard statement said.
Idaho Army National Guard Col. Christopher Burt said the aircraft was last contacted at 7:45 p.m. After an emergency transmitter locator device aboard the aircraft was activated shortly after 8 p.m., personnel were dispatched to search for the helicopter.
Attorno 12:15 a.m. mercoledì, crews located the helicopter and personnel near Lucky Peak, secondo la dichiarazione.
    This is a tremendous loss to the Idaho National Guard and our community,” Maggio. Gen. Michael Garshak said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones as we work through this tragedy.
      The cause of the crash is unknown and an investigation will begin immediately, diceva la dichiarazione. The National Guard is not identifying the pilots pending notification of their next of kin.
      Gov. Brad Little has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of the three pilots.
