Army helicopter makes ‘precautionary landing’ in Culpeper field

RICHARDSVILLE, Va. (AP) — A U.S. Army Black Hawk helicopter landed in field at a farm in Culpeper County as a precaution.

The Free Lance-Star reports that there were no injuries to the three-member crew based at Fort Belvoir. Military District of Washington spokeswoman Shaunteh Kelly described the incident on Thursday afternoon as “a precautionary landing” after a light came on in the cockpit.

She says a second helicopter was dispatched to pick up the crew and assess repairs.
