1993- Five Navy Aviators

On March 26, 1993 a E-2C Hawkeye crashes in Italy. The crash occurred shortly after the plane was “waved off” from a landing attempt on the Carrier Roosevelt, due to a “foul deck”. – All five of the men who died had been Bill Clinton’s escorts during his visit to the Roosevelt 2 weeks prior. Four other men, who had also flown Bill Clinton to the Roosevelt for that visit also died later in a helicopter crash.
