37 Soldaten sterben bei Hubschrauber-Tragödie

Sie sind im Wrack verbrannt oder auf der Erde zerschellt: Am 18. August 1971 sterben nahe Pegnitz 37 junge US-Soldaten beim Absturz eines Chinook auf dem Weg nach Grafenwöhr. Das grausige Erlebnis bewegt Augenzeugen auch 50 Jahre später.

Pegnitz' Stadtarchivar Andreas Bayerlein hat im Archiv viele Dokumente zum Absturz verwahrt. Die Bild-Zeitung berichtete am 19. August über die "größte Hubschrauber-Katastrophe der Welt".
