Wreckage of missing US Marine helicopter found in Nepal mountains | Fox News
I'd like to honor our service personnel who were conducting humanitarian missions in Nepal to help the earthquake victims.U.S. and Nepalese military officials said Friday that the wreckage of a U.S. Marine helicopter that disappeared earlier this week had been found.
The wreckage of the UH-1 "Huey" helicopter was found eight miles north of the town of Charikot, near where the aircraft had vanished on Tuesday while delivering humanitarian aid to villages hit by two deadly earthquakes, according to U.S. Pacific Command spokesman Maj. Dave Eastburn.
There was no immediate confirmation of the fate of the six U.S. Marines and two Nepalese soldiers who had been on the chopper when it disappeared. Nepal's Defense Secretary Iswori Poudyal described the wreckage as being "in pieces," adding "there are no chances of any survivors."
