Lord have mercy! :'(Santagranddad said:Sadly, as I type a US Navy Super Stallion helicopter is reported as having gone down off Norfolk, Virginia. A search for the 5 person crew is currently underway.
At the sight of yesterday's crash on marshland the deceased remain in among the debris scattered across an area the size of a football pitch. This debris includes live munitions. As removing the dead might interfere with the evidence needed to establish the cause and any safety implications for the erstwhile craft type with an enviable safety record, it is not expected that recovery will take place until tomorrow.
