(KHNL) - The Army Black Hawk helicopter that crashed Wednesday in northern Iraq, killing all 14 soldiers aboard, was assigned to Hawaii.
According to a defense official, the aircraft was from the 25th Infantry Division's combat aviation brigade based at Schofield Barracks.
The four crew members and ten passengers aboard were assigned to Task Force Lightning.
The military says initial indications showed the helicopter had a mechanical problem and was not brought down by hostile fire, but the cause of the crash was under investigation.
