    Navy crew faulted for dipping helicopters in Tahoe

    SOUTH LAKE TAHOE Ten U.S. Navy crew members narrowly averted disaster when their helicopters accidentally dipped into Lake Tahoe in September while they tried to take photos for the squadron's Facebook page, military investigators concluded.

    A Navy report released Wednesday found that crew members' unplanned hovering without sufficient power caused the MH-60R Seahawks to drop without warning to the water of Emerald Bay. Both aircraft were able to regain altitude and land nearby.

    There were no injuries, but damage to both helicopters totaled $505,751 in the incident captured in a video filmed by a group of hikers and posted on YouTube.

    Oops !!

    Aviation is already a risky enough endeavor, it's stupid to take unneccessary risks.
