RAF Lakenheath’s mission commander has offered his condolences to the families of the four airmen who died in the crash at Cley.

Colonel Kyle Robinson, 48th Fighter Wing commander, asked that people keep the victims and their families “in your thoughts and prayers”.

“The loss of our Liberty Wing brethren is felt deeply across RAF Lakenheath,” said Col. Kyle Robinson, 48th Fighter Wing commander. “I can only imagine the hurt and sorrow felt by the family and friends of these Airmen. You are in our hearts and minds.

“We’re already feeling a great sense of support from across the Air Force and from our UK neighbors as we go through this difficult period,” he said.

U.S. Air Force personnel continue to work alongside UK civilian and military authorities at the scene of the HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter crash.

The victims are likely to be named tomorrow, with USAF saying it will name the men 24 hours after their families have been informed.
