An HH-60G Pave Hawk based at RAF Lakenheath, England, crashed Tuesday evening, with its four-member crew feared dead.

The Air Force confirmed that a Pave Hawk assigned to the 48th Fighter Wing at Lakenheath crashed earlier this evening. Norfolk County police said all four airmen are believed to have died when the helicopter crashed near Cley Next The Sea.

“The helicopter has been confirmed as a USAF Pave Hawk HH-60 helicopter from RAF Lakenheath and four occupants are thought to have died in the crash,” the police said in a statement. “Next of kin will be informed before further details on the victims are released.”

RAF Lakenheath said in a statement that the condition of the four was unknown. The crash occurred during low-level training. Police said the crash happened at about 6 p.m. local time near Salthouse on the Norfolk coast. Police do not believe there were any injuries on the ground.

The 48th Fighter Wing at Lakenheath is the home of the 56th Rescue Squadron.
