Two Army transport helicopters collided and plummeted to the ground Tuesday just before soldiers were to descend to a mock-up of a downed helicopter and "rescue" soldiers pretending to be injured. Six people were killed and 30 were injured. The accident--the military's second fatal helicopter collision in just over a month--occurred during the afternoon when the main rotor blades of the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters hit each other, said Maj. Joe Howell, a post spokesman.
