Two Ground Self-Defense Force attack helicopters collided in midair during a training flight Monday and crashed on a mountain in Isobe, Mie Prefecture, killing two of the four crew members on board, the GSDF and police said.

GSDF search teams found the AH-1S Apache choppers near 336-meter Mount Aomine. One of the four crew members died at the crash site and another went into cardiac arrest and was later pronounced dead, police said.
