FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- Fort Campbell officials say a company commander, a helicopter pilot and a repairman were killed when their helicopter crashed during a training flight in northeastern Alabama.
Capt. Scott N. Shimp, Chief Warrant Office 2 David M. Stanley and Sgt. Jeffrey Scott Angel II died when the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter struck power lines in foggy weather and plunged into a pasture.
They were all assigned to Company C, 4th Battalion, 101st Aviation Regiment, 159th Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division.
Alabama officials said the helicopter crashed into a field near a house Tuesday night. Debris was scattered over a large area and some of the wreckage burned.
A memorial ceremony is planned next week at Fort Campbell.
