ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Two men managed to walk away unharmed after a helicopter crash just south of the proposed new St. George Airport.
Police said they received a report yesterday afternoon that a helicopter, a Robinson R-22, crashed in a field south of the old airport runway.
When authorities arrived, the two pilots, Joey Campbell and Dixie Ambulance, were already up and walking.
Authorities would not say the cause of the accident and said the final word would come from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The helicopter was owned by a St. George-based flight instruction business. The two men are both licensed pilots and were out on an instructional flight.
