Default 3 killed in Royal New Zealand air force UH-1 Iroquois crash

Air force helicopter crash: Tragedy in the fog

A lone Air Force crewman ran 2km through steep and rugged uphill terrain to get to the mangled helicopter wreck that contained the bodies of three of his colleagues.
The man was on board one of three Iroquois helicopters flying in formation from Ohakea air base to Anzac Day services in Wellington, when another of the aircraft crashed in heavy cloud, killing the three men shortly before 6am yesterday.
They were 28-year-old Flying Officer Daniel Stephen Gregory, a pilot, 33-year-old Flight Lieutenant Hayden Peter Madsen, also a pilot, and 25-year-old Corporal Benjamin Andrew Carson, a crewman.
Another crewman survived and was last night in a stable condition in Wellington Hospital.
