Who Killed Lt. Van Dorn?

Directed by Zachary Stauffer

United States, 80 minutes

Lt. Wes Van Dorn, a 29-year-old U.S. Naval Academy graduate and married father of two sons, died in a crash off the coast of Virginia while piloting an MH-53E helicopter during a 2014 training exercise. Upon hearing the Navy’s accounting of the accident, his widow sparks a separate investigation. Since Wes had been convinced that the helicopters were death traps, he had recorded his own observations as well as those of his charges. Armed with that information, a long history of negligence and institutional failings are uncovered.

Scheduled to appear: Zachary Stauffer and Mike Hixenbaugh
