ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Alamogordo police say speed appears to be a factor in a crash that killed three airmen from Holloman Air Force Base.
The identities of those killed have not been released.
Police say a city worker spotted the wreck in the desert off airport road after dawn Tuesday, but it appears the accident happened hours earlier.
A Holloman spokesman says the victims were assigned to the 49th wing. They included one instructor and two students with the wing’s remotely piloted aircraft squadron.
