Seven Marines and four soldiers were missing early Wednesday following an Army helicopter crash in Florida, officials said.

A search and rescue operation was launched after one of two UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters participating in a routine nighttime training mission crashed, Eglin Air Force Base spokesman Andy Bourland said.

Bourland said it was too soon to say what caused the crash, but that there were "weather issues" overnight.

Search and rescue teams have located some debris which began to collect in the search area, Bourland added.

The helicopter was reported missing at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and debris was located at about 2 a.m., base officials said in a statement.

My uncle is at Eglin. Hold on, I'll try to call him.

It's early, though.

Yup. Nothing to see here. Fer realz.

Debris already located and no survivors (sadly) so far.

Stand by.

And, your graphic is lazy.

It's a Blackhawk that's crashed. Not a Warthog.

They found the wreckage (that was my point). Any survivors will be a net gain...

Yup. That's what I got so far too. Hopefully someone was able to jump or survive the rapid decel.

I am sure that's not the case here but my uncle was in the army and told me that sometimes those killed in battle somewhere would be later presented as having died in some accident or training

It happens when Special Operations troops are killed. Or troops are killed somewhere they weren't supposed to be.

Or when a CO is trying to make sure a victim's insurance is squared away.

Debris has been located east of the Navarre Bridge and it is expected that debris will continue to appear in the area moving toward the bridge

I'm guessing they are referring to the debris found from the crash at around 2 a.m. Wednesday

That's low. If anyone is supplying them its foreign nationals proxying for the CIA.

can't think of any instance where they've gone to such lengths to construct a scenario so they could disappear some people. the families are usually told something to the effect of 'training accident, details will not be provided' and that's the end of it. since the whole idea is not to attract attention, calling the local news agencies isn't typically high on the list of things to do

Low??? I dont believe you understand just how LOW the dogs of war go, and i'm not just talking US here, but i'm certainly talking about the Western suppliers of weapons and their backers, most of whom are involved in our political system at every level.

99% of the Worlds population is at War with the 1%...we just dont see it yet.

The military is not personally handing weapons over to terrorists... especially this case since the crash happened here in the states. So yeah, your comment is lower than low.

i live one mile from one of the outer ranges of Eglin off HWY87 south, and about 15 miles from the Navarre Bridge.
there are only two spots that i can think of where they might have went down. one is between the bridge and before you get to Hurlbert Feild, the the other is between Ft Walton and Destin.

here i found where it is said where the debris was found. also on a sad note human remains have also been found.

Map from here.
UPDATED: 7 MARSOC Marines, 4 National Guard Soldiers Missing Following Florida Blackhawk Accident


Remains found after Florida Black Hawk crash

if you know the area, this would be a ideal spot for MARSOC to train for insertion. Hwy 98 runs right beside it and you can see the beach in spots. the area right around the hwy is built up and would be good place to practice landing undetected.

also i can tell you that fog here was bad last night.
