The bodies of the four airmen killed in the Pave Hawk helictoper crash at Cley are to be flown back to the US today.
Captains Sean Ruane and Christopher Stover, Technical Sergeant Dale Mathews and Staff Sergeant Afton Ponce will be flown into Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, a spokeswoman for RAF Lakenheath confirmed today.
The four aircrew died on Tuesday after the helicopter they were flying crashed during a training mission.
The spokeswoman said the bodies would be flown out of RAF Mildenhall today before official ceremonies are held in the US, as per the wishes of the victims’ families.
