  • Military helicopter crashes in Maryland, killing one

A witness in the course's pro shop said the helicopter was flying low and spinning before the crash, perhaps indicative of trouble with the tail rotor, which controls a helicopter's horizontal movement.

One person on board was able to self-eject, while two other military personnel remained trapped in the downed helicopter.

County officials could not be reached for comment.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, the Army said.

Harvey said no one was out at the holes playing golf where the helicopter crashed.

Leonardtown is about 60 miles southeast of Washington, D.C. Gen. Bradley A. Becker, commanding general for Joint Force Headquarters National Capital Region and the U.S. Army Military District of Washington, said in the statement.

That means it is probably a good idea for you to download the update only over a Wi-Fi network and not the cellular data network. It looks like the first Nokia-branded smartphone will be jumping on the 7.1.1 bandwagon way before many other flagship devices.

The helicopter crashed in Leonardtown, MD, on Monday at about 1:50 p.m.

"I was outside in my front yard when I saw the helicopter come over right across the street from my house".

Harper said she didn't see smoke or flames, "just pieces falling out of the sky".

The UH-60 Blackhawk, part of the 12th Aviation Batallion, was stationed at Davision Airfield, Fort Belvoir in Virginia, WBAL reported, and it was on a routine training flight. Investigators were driving around the course in golf carts Monday evening, placing evidence markers near pieces of debris.

One of the crew members was medevaced from the scene, Ft. He says state police have sent two medevac helicopters to the scene to assist. No one was injured on the ground, according to NBC Washington.
