An accident involving a U.S. military helicopter briefly knocked out electricity in some parts of Owenton and other communities in the region.
According to Lt. Col. Mike Ferguson, U.S. Army aviation facility commander of Frankfort, a Blackhawk UH 60 helicopter was on a training mission focusing on the use of night-vision goggles.
During the exercise, the pilot saw some electrical wire in the path of the helicopter. Although he attempted to fly over the wires, the blades of the Blackhawk’s rotors sliced through the lines at approximately 10:15 p.m. Thursday.
