Q: How many members of the Lewis and Clark expedition died during the trek?

A: Not as many as the 21st Century team, recreating the trip in a helicopter.

Despite the loss of three of its members in a helicopter crash, a team retracing the Lewis and Clark trail by air continued its course east Monday.

“We decided . . . that the best way we could honor and complete the wishes of the three friends and peers was to continue on our expedition and carry out the culmination of four years of vision and planning,” said Wendi Goldsmith, expedition spokeswoman.
