VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

 

Officials at Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta, GA have confirmed that two U.S. crewmembers who died in a military helicopter crash in England were previously stationed at the base.

A Moody AFB spokesman said Capt. Sean Ruane was at the base from October 2007 to August 2011, and Capt. Christopher Stover was at the base from July 2010 to August 2011.

Air Force officials identified Ruane and Stover as the pilots of the Pave Hawk helicopter that slammed into the eastern coast during a training mission Tuesday night. Tech. Sgt. Dale E. Mathews, and SSgt Afton M. Ponce were also killed in the crash.

The aircraft was assigned to the 48th Fighter Wing.
