The line between between a crash and a landing can get a little fuzzy.  

RIP, Marine.

Yesterday was a rough day for rotary wing aviation. An army Blackhawk was lost out in Colorado as well. Fortunately, I don't think anyone was killed or critically injured in that crash. It looked as if the pilot was able to let her drop down through the trees and had enough energy stored in the blades to chop down some sizable trees and  soften the impact with the ground. I'm sorry to learn the -53 crash didn't have as favorable an outcome.



BTW, the reporter writing that article makes Camp Lejeune sound like a ship instead of a land base...."aboard Camp Lejeune".

As any veteran of the Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard can tell you, that phraseology is correct.

 And your post makes it sound like you know fuck-all about the Navy or Marine Corps.

Well if that's three than good. Not to make light at all but that sounds like getting off a bit easy as far as bad goes in three helo crashes.
