Service held for 2 Connecticut brothers killed in helicopter crashPosted: Updated:
A service was held Saturday for two Connecticut brothers who died after their helicopter crashed in Nevada.
The crash happened three weeks ago near Red Rock Canyon.
Howard Jameson and Scott Socquet were avid flyers. Socquet was a pilot for decades. Jameson was 25 years younger than Socquet.
The two were at an aviation convention in Las Vegas in October when the helicopter that Scott Socquet was piloting crashed.
"This is from the eyewitnesses that were there -- they came up to him and he said, 'I'm not going to make it. Take care of my brother,'" said brother Neil Socquet.
Jameson's injuries were severe, but he was still conscious right after the crash.
"He said the same thing so, that's the kind of guys they were," said Neil Socquet.
In addition to both brothers leaving behind their parents and brother Neil Socquet, Scott Socquet leaves behind a wife and two teenaged children. Jameson leaves behind his new wife.
Neil Socquet says that the NTSB will have a final report out in about eight months regarding the cause of the crash.
