Helicopter Pilot Dies in Crash at Blackwater/Xe Campus in Moyock/Northeast North Carolina | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

My law partner colleague, licensed pilot/injury attorney James C. Lewis, posted an article on our related Northeast North Carolina (NC) Injuryboard injury law blog about the tragic death of Glen Wenzel a decorated U.S. Army veteran, killed in a helicopter crash at the Blackwater facility in Camden County, near Moyock, NC about 30 miles from Norfolk, Virginia (VA).

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reported that the helicopter crash was caused by a skid of the helicopter that caught on an object and flipped the copter over. The accident happened at the Blackwater security contractor campus.  Blackwater has changed its name to “Xe” because of the bad publicity associated with its Blackwater tradename.  Currituck County’s chief deputy, Sandy Casey, was an early responder at the scene and stated: “all I could see from where I was working pieces… the tail looked like it was broken off.”
