Mystery CRASH Leads To Emergency Order – U.S. Navy Scrambling!
(TruthandLiberty.com) – Flying high-tech, expensive military aircraft comes with a tremendous amount of investment in both the equipment and pilot training. Still, the military sometimes pushes its technology’s limits as it continually trains for war. While accidents happen, the Navy has experienced an unusually high number of fatal mishaps recently. On Monday, June 13, Vice Adm. Kenneth Whitesell, commander of Naval Air Forces, ordered a pause on all non-deployed aviation units. The pause allows aircraft squadrons to review their risk-management practices and train for handling threats and errors.
On Thursday, June 9, an MH-60S Seahawk helicopter crashed near El Centro, California. The incident injured four crew members while the chopper conducted a routine training flight. On Wednesday, an MV-22B Osprey crashed in a training area in remote California, killing all five Marines on board the aircraft. Days earlier, a F/A-18 Super Hornet went down in California, taking its pilot along with it.
The Navy says it’s still investigating the cause of all three accidents.

Adm. Whitesell said the Navy must ensure the safety of its people is the top priority to maintain the force readiness of each squadron. The order applies to units not currently deployed. The Navy said those currently deployed should conduct the safety pause at the earliest convenience.
