Get used to seeing those downed Blackhawk helicopters at Snowbird Resort
SNOWBIRD, Utah — Nearly a week after two Blackhawk helicopters crashed into each other at Snowbird Resort, they’re still there, leaving skiers navigating around the site.
The Utah National Guard said the crash happened during routine training. Miraculously, all eight crew members doing the training escaped unscathed.
The U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center in Fort Rucker, Ala., sent investigators to the crash site last week. Their investigation continues. Until that investigation is completed, the Blackhawks will stay right where they are, in Snowbird’s Mineral Basin.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
