The Black Hawk helicopter that crashed on Texas A&M's campus Monday has been removed from campus.

A military flat-bed trailer left the campus early Saturday morning bound for Austin as the Army continues its investigation into the deadly accident at Duncan Field during a training exercise for the Corps of Cadets.

"It's going to be placed in a secure hanger at the Austin Aviation Support Facility where the investigation is going to continue for at least a couple more weeks, and really, as long as it takes to get to the bottom of what caused the incident," said Capt. Adam Collett with the Army National Guard.

Lt. Zac Cook, a Texas A&M grad working with the ROTC program, and Sgt. Charles Mitts died when the helicopter went down Monday. Three others on board were injured, and remain in hospitals in San Antonio and College Station for treatment.
