Test Pilots Killed in AW609 Crash

Pilots killed in test flight mishap.

The future of AgustaWestland’s AW609 civil tiltrotor program has been thrown into doubt after the crash of a prototype in Italy on Friday that killed the two test pilots on board.
Radar data appears to confirm that the aircraft, Prototype 2, went down about 10 minutes after takeoff near Santhia in northern Italy, near the manufacturer’s headquarters in Cascina Costa on the outskirts of Milan.
AgustaWestland released the following statement:
