Three Killed -- Official Says Dispatchers Broke Procedure
The investigation continues into last Wednesday's crash of a
Messerschmitt-Boelkow Blohm Bo-105S helicopter that was on a
medical mission in the Florida Panhandle. All three people on board
were killed. As tragic as the accident was, the events surrounding
it have raised procedural questions in Florida's Walton County. The
aircraft was missing for five hours before anyone noticed.
