A U.S. Navy Sikorsky MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Virginia during a routine training exercise Wednesday forcing five service members on board into the 42-degree waters below. Two of the crew were killed. The crash came a day after the U.S. Air Force Sikorsky Pave Hawk crashed in Norfolk, England. So far there is no word on the cause of the crash. The aircraft was part of a Norfolk Naval Station countermine unit. In addition to a U.S. Coast Guard cutter, two Navy MH-60S helicopters were involved in the rescue efforts. (Image Credit: U.S. Navy)
