Pilots Killed In Apache Crash

Two pilots were killed after an AH-64 Apache helicopter crashed in South Korea, military officials said. The helicopter, assigned to the 2nd Infantry Division/Republic of Korea-US Combined Division, was flying a routine training mission when it crashed, Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis told reporters Monday at the Pentagon. It happened about 50 miles east of Camp Humphreys, and authorities in the area believe it may have hit high voltage power lines, NBC News reported. Both pilots were killed, Davis said. “We offer our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the families of the soldiers involved in this tragic incident,” Army Lt. Col. Mark Gillespie, deputy commander of 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade, said in a statement to NBC. The pilots’? names are being held pending next of kin notification. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
