Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento, lowers the station's national ensign to half mast
Officials say they're no longer searching for survivors of a midair collision between a U.S. Coast Guard plane and a Marine Corps helicopter in the Pacific Ocean off Southern California.
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.
