Default 1 Dead, 3 Missing in South Korean Navy Lynx Crash

1 Dead, 3 Missing in Lynx Helicopter Crash

A Lynx helicopter belonging to the Third Naval Fleet which was patrolling near Chuja Island 14.5 km southeast of Jindo, South Jeolla Province, crashed around 8:58 pm on Thursday, leaving one officer dead and three others missing.

The helicopter was searching for a submarine. The military and maritime police immediately sent out two high-speed ships and eight patrol boats to the site of the accident, where they discovered the body of Lt. Kwon Dae-ha.

A military spokesman said the helicopter "is a fairly new model which is just 11 years old, capable of instrument flying, and the weather was fine. We are currently investigating the cause of the accident." It was dispatched to Baeknyeong Island at 9:47 pm on March 26, the day when the Cheonan sank, and explored the surface as the warship Sokcho fired 130 76-mm cannons at what it later claimed was "a flock of birds" heading quickly to North Korea.

Lynx helicopters go on military missions with warships, and are used for operations against submarines or attacks over water. Since the 1990s, they have been operated with combat destroyers King Kwanggaeto the Great, Chungmugong Yi Sun-shin, and Aegis Warship King Sejong the Great.
