Contact was lost yesterday with an Army Black Hawk helicopter flying sorties as it prepared to evacuate the bodies of five Army personnel killed in the crash of another chopper on July 11 near the Thai-Burma border. The Black Hawk that disappeared yesterday had nine, including VIP passengers, on board.
In addition to four crew members, the five passengers were the commander of the elite 9th Infantry Division, Maj-General Tawan Ruengsri, the chief of the evacuation operation, and Channel 5 cameraman Sornchai Khongtannukool, along with two captains.
A rescue team on Friday 22 July 2011 found the wreckage of a Black Hawk helicopter that crashed this week in mountainous terrain on the Thai-Myanmar border where it had been sent to recover bodies from another chopper crash.
All nine people on board the helicopter died in the crash, Thai television reports said.
