Who Killed Lt. Van Dorn?

Videos and DVDs
The death of a Navy lieutenant who crashed in a controversial MH-53E helicopter model is the crux of this inquisitive documentary. Lieutenant Wes Van Dorn, a 29-year-old United States Naval Academy graduate and the married father of two young sons, died when the helicopter he was piloting crashed off the coast of Virginia during a 2014 training exercise. Motivated by her grief, his wife Nicole sought an explanation for the cause of the disaster. Her efforts spurred an investigation that uncovered a long history of negligence and institutional failings around the 53E helicopter, not only the model Van Dorn was piloting when he was killed, but the deadliest aircraft in the US military. Official Selection at the **Mill Valley Film Festival**.
