Copter crashes on USS Ronald Reagan in Asia, sailors hurt

Several Hurt In Chopper Crash On US Carrier In Philippine Sea

Spectators watch the US Navy's Nimitz-class aircraft carrier "USS Ronald Reagan" (CVN-76) sailing during the International Fleet Review in the sea of Seogwipo, off the island of Jeju, South Korea, on Oct 11 this year.

Flight operations aboard the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan are back in full swing Friday following a helicopter crash on the ship's flight deck. "The sailors that had the more extensive injuries were medically evacuated to a hospital in the Philippines".

"Injuries ranged from minor abrasions and lacerations to bone fractures", Keiley said in an email to Task & Purpose.

The Navy's 7th Fleet said in a statement that the MH-60 Seahawk "made an emergency landing and crashed" shortly after takeoff at about 9. a.m. local time while the carrier was undertaking routine operations off the Philippine coast.


"All injured personnel are in stable condition under evaluation by Ronald Reagan medical staff".

Families of the injured personnel have been notified, Navy officials said.

An investigation has been opened into the cause of the crash, according to the statement. He said the Ronald Reagan "sustained minimal damage" in the crash but remains "fully mission-capable" and "resumed flight operations within a matter of hours".

The 1,092-foot Reagan carries a crew of 4,539 and is equipped with roughly 60 aircraft, according to the Navy.
