“This is the first such incident involving the brand new Apache helicopters which were procured by India in an approximately $2-billion deal from the US. The air force is likely to order a court of inquiry into the incident,” said an IAF official. The air force in a statement said the chopper made a precautionary landing after a warning alert on its control panels.
The crew is safe and no major damage has been reported. “The attack choppers are based out of the Pathankot airbase and this chopper had taken off from there. The Air Force will check the helicopter and then take it back to its base. The pilots are safe,” the IAF said. ■
