Helicopter crash in Hawaii: Search for 12 missing Marines -

CNN)Crews are searching for 12 Marines missing at sea after two CH-53 helicopters apparently collided during an overnight training flight off the Hawaiian island of Oahu, authorities said.

Personnel from the U.S. Coast Guard, Navy, and Honolulu Fire Department looked for survivors seven miles offshore in increasingly poor weather conditions. Swells reached 16 feet, surf rose to 40 feet and visibility extended to only one mile, the Coast Guard said.


I heard about this. I didn’t look at the link (I’m allergic to CNN), but I’m guessing they were out of K-bay (if it’s still in operation).
