Two Idaho National Guard crew members are dead after an Apache helicopter crashed near their Boise base Thursday night.
The crash happened after dark, and the Idaho National Guard has confirmed the Apache was conducting a routine nighttime training exercise.
KTVB reported neighbors who own the field where the crash happened near Boise Airport didn't hear the Apache go down, and the National Guard was only notified when an emergency beacon aboard the helicopter went off.
