TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - An investigation is ongoing into the crash of the AH-64 Apache helicopter on the sprawling National Training Center at Fort Irwin in southern California, Lieutenant Colonel Jason Brown, U.S. Army spokesman, said in a statement emailed to Reuters.

The crew of soldiers and the aircraft were based in Fort Carson in Colorado and were on a training rotation at the base in the Mojave Desert, said Brandy Gill, a spokeswoman for the Army at Fort Carson.

The crash occurred about 1 a.m. local time, Gill said.

Another Army spokesman said that the pilot and the co-pilot were killed, but did not give their names, saying their families had yet to be notified.
