Petty Officer First Class Allison Conroy said there was little chance of finding survivors among the seven military personnel aboard the Coast Guard C-130 and the two in the Marine Corps Super Cobra helicopter.

Conroy says the active search for survivors has been suspended.

The C-130’s crew was based out of the Coast Guard’s Air Station in Sacramento…at McClellan Air Field.

The two aircraft collided Thursday evening as the Coast Guard was searching for a missing boater.

Debris from both aircraft was found, but there was no sign of the crew members.
