An HH-60G Pave Hawk based at RAF (Royal Air Force) Lakenheath has crashed near the coast in Norfolk UK, killing all four crew on board. The aircraft was from the 48th Fighter Wing and was on a low-level training flight when the crash occurred. A second helicopter also on the exercise landed safely close to the scene of the accident.
Emergency services worked at the scene throughout the night with the help of military personnel and volunteers.
A wide exclusion zone has been imposed by police as the craft was carrying live ammunition. Wreckage is scattered over a wide area of marshland at Cley Next The Sea, a village in Norfolk, on the east coast of the United Kingdom.
The Ministry of Defence Air Accident Investigation Branch and US Air Force investigators are at the scene. (source)
