Five Officers And Crew Members Lost
An Agusta A109-K2 helicopter flown by police in central Japan
went down Tuesday, killing all five officers on board, authorities
said. There was no immediate word on the cause of the mishap.
The aircraft wasn't
even supposed to fly that day, according to police in Shizuoka,
about 95 miles west of Tokyo. It replaced one that suffered a minor
malfunction earlier in the day.
The officers aboard the aircraft were monitoring holiday traffic
during Japan's "Golden Week" celebration, according to police.
There was no warning from the pilot of trouble before the crash,
Although the aircraft clipped an apartment on its way down, no
one on the ground was hurt.
