Tragically a Pave Hawk came down in Norfolk UK it was on a routine training mission from RAF Lakenheath, the weather conditions were not ideal due to strong rain and storms.

The debris is spread out over an area the size of a football pitch but in a straightish line suggesting it was flying quite fast and straight when it hit. Perhaps the pilot lost sight of the ground or there was a downdraft of course mechanical failure cannot be discounted.

All four Crew have been killed in the accident but are yet to be named our hearts go out to their families and may those who lost their lives rest in peace.
