USA: helicopter crashes on the USS "Ronald Reagan"
Soldiers on board were injured. The flight deck can still be used
This morning in the Philippine Sea a US Navy MH-60 Seahawk helicopter crashed on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS "Ronald Reagan", shortly after take-off for a training mission to search and recover in sea. This was reported by the Seventh American Fleet, which informed that the personnel -unknown to the number- on board were injured but the conditions would be stable and no one would be in danger of life, even those for whom it was necessary medical evacuation to Japan. The super-aircraft carrier "Ronald Reagan" stationed in Yokosuka will remain at sea to continue the training maneuvers and the planes and helicopters on board will continue to take off and land on the flight deck.
