just saw tonight in the news, 1 of the pilots

Major Shay Denor was a father of 5, age 35... really sad thing :(

 

for some reason there is no info about the second pilot, i guess it's classified..

Time to retire those birds. Lost 2 people from my unit during a test flight. The E-4 was a member of maintenance platoon onboard for a joyride. His wife was pregnant with their first child. Damn shame.

 

Top of the list...last active army deaths in the AH-1
