Chinook has unexpected stop-over in Henderson County
By Jacque Day
Henderson County, Ky. – Some Iowa National Guardsmen had an unexpected stay in Western Kentucky. The crew of a Chinook helicopter headed to Fort Campbell for flight training Sunday decided to land the aircraft in a Henderson County soybean field after encountering problems with the hydraulic system. Another helicopter with replacement parts arrived Monday, and by this afternoon the crew was back in Iowa. No injuries were reported, and their Fort Campbell training has been rescheduled. Land owner David Alexander says losing some of his soybeans was "worth the excitement."
