Moody AFB investigators document debris from plane crash

| March 8, 2017

HOMERVILLE – On Tuesday, Moody investigative teams were still combing the crash site on Whisperwood Lane.

They’re looking for any clues to what happened when one of their A-29s crashed just yards away from a family home.

Officials says they’re covering every inch of this investigation, on the ground and from the sky.

The HH-60G helicopters were flying over the crash site this afternoon.

They were conducting an aerial search and taking pictures of the crash zone, and where the two pilots landed beyond the wood line.

Teams have been collecting data throughout the night.

“We’re just trying to expedite this mishap and investigation as fast as we can, as safely as we can, and the best we can,” says Popeye Chang, with Moody AFB.

He say they’re working with the property owners, who have been a huge help during the process.

The last time one of their aircrafts crashed in South Georgia was 5 years ago in Cook County.

Moody officials say the Air Education and Training Command is handling the accident in Clinch County.

“For such a surprising event as this, we are extremely grateful that both pilots got out of there okay, ” says Chang.

They’re hoping to wrap up the investigation in the next few months and release a full crash report.
