Search underway for 12 Marines after 2 helicopters collide off North Shore

Coast Guard officials told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser they received a distress call at 10:38 p.m. from the Marines that two of its CH-53 Super Stallion helicopters, each with six Marines on board, had crashed off Oahu. Debris from the crash was sighted 2.5 miles off Haleiwa shortly after midnight, they said. CNN, citing a Coast Guard spokeswoman, reported that search crews spotted an empty life raft and flames on the water.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those Super Stallions were always circling the island in formation training flights. I am going to take a guess that they collided the main rotors which is why they could not auto-rotate down to the sea.
