Three people were killed Saturday when their vintage military helicopter crashed after striking power lines in San Bernardino County.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said the 1951 Piasecki PV-18 helicopter took off from Adelanto Airport at 8:30 a.m. headed to Flabob Airport in Riverside. It crashed and burst into flames a mile into its flight.
