Businesses shocked after hard landing happens nearby

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Businesses near Hunter Army Airfield are shocked after a military helicopter made a hard landing, killing one and injuring two others.

WTOC went door to door Thursday, talking to people who live and work right next to Hunter.

Most people say they are used to hearing low-flying planes and helicopters being this close to the air field, but no one heard anything unusual Wednesday night.

Dan Ribich says he's worked across the street from the airfield for 25 years and he says nothing like this has ever happened before.

"They have a great record over there as far as crashes," said Ribich. "There haven't been any crashes since I've been here and as far as I know there haven't been any crashes at all over there."
