British military 'copter crash kills 2
by UPI

LONDON -- The British military Thursday investigated the crash of a Royal Air Force helicopter in northern England that killed two soldiers and injured 10 others.

The RAF Puma helicopter went down around 9 p.m. Wednesday night in a field west of the military's Catterick Garrison in North Yorkshire, The Times of London reported.

Two of the 10 injured were in critical condition, while some of the injured men were able to walk, Sky News said.

The aircraft was carrying three RAF crew and nine army soldiers, the Ministry of Defense said.

Local resident Andrew Pavey witnessed the crash, and told the BBC he had a bad feeling as it made its ascent.

"We watched this helicopter quite rapidly go straight up into the air and it didn’t sound right," he said. "It sounded like the engine was misfiring or something -- it was making a hell of a racket."
