All Four On Board Killed
Four US Marines aboard a UH-1 helicopter were killed when it
went down at Camp Pendleton (CA) Thursday night. It was an
especially hard blow for members of Pendleton's aviation unit.
Three of their own were killed in a UH-1N crash in Iraq last
"This certainly is a tragedy, and we hope we are able to assist
the families of the victims during this time," Maj. T.V. Johnson
The aircraft was in a cargo configuration during the training
run Thursday night. It went down in a remote, hilly part of the
base near Interstate 5 and San Clemente.
"The aircraft itself was a total loss," Capt. Shawn Turner said
from Washington. He said the the identities of those killed were
being withheld pending notification of their relatives. Three
crewmembers were pronounced dead at the scene. A fourth died
approximatly two hours after the 7:00 pm PST crash.
A San Diego television station reported the Huey struck power
lines near the interstate, but Johnson refused to say if that was
indeed the cause of the crash. "I'm not going into speculating on
what may or may have happened."
