I hope they can be recovered when the fuselage is found to give everyone closure.

Why were three aviators aboard? Check flight?

Probably...or someone went along for the fun of it.

That is very odd.

RIP.

Very often 60 pilots "split time" with a pilot in command to get hrs. I might fly the first half and do 1.5 of instruments, and crew on the way home after refueling so another pilot can get NVG time or whatever.

RIP Soldiers. It's a dangerous job, even in peacetime.

That sucks.

I remember my first friend I lost from flight school. A LT that was my "stick buddy" for a bit had a midair with two Cobras under NVGs in Korea. One crashed and burned and killed both on board. The other crashed but both survived and later I flew with the guy from the second aircraft for a while.

Army Aviation is a small world but I've been out long enough now I don't know any of the players anymore at least.

I've been around long enough to remember hearing that story:  if it's the same story, one climbed up under/into the other, taking off the skids of the one above (which crashed but they survived) but doomed themselves.
