Fort Hood Chinook Helicopter Makes Emergency Landing in Mills County
Mills County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Chris Green says it all happened Tuesday just after 11:30 am. The Chinook touched down in a field just north of Highway 84. The Sheriff's deputies received an alert from Fort Hood officials who said they lost contact with the pilot and crew for a short period of time.
The crew was able to land safely without incident. Everyone on board was ok. The Chinook is a twin-engine helicopter that does a lot of the heavy lifting and transport work for the army, often used to move troops and cargo from place to place. We are sure glad everyone is ok!
