Initial findings of an inquiry into the helicopter collision that killed 73 servicemen near Israel's northern border earlier this month stop short of determining the cause of the crash but point to human errors that may have played a role, according to a report released Friday. The two transport helicopters collided in heavy rain and fog Feb. 4 over the upper Galilee community of Shaar Yeshuv as they ferried soldiers to Israeli outposts in southern Lebanon. All on board were killed.

Seventy-three Israeli soldiers headed for southern Lebanon were killed Tuesday night when two military helicopters collided in midair near Israel's stormy northern border. It was the worst military air disaster in this country's half-century history. One of the U.S.-made transport helicopters fell in a fireball on the upper Galilee community of Shaar Yeshuv, setting an empty bungalow ablaze but not causing any casualties on the ground.
