Yet another Indian army helicopter crashes killing two pilots and an engineer. The Cheetah helicopter that took off from Bareilly airbase developed a technical snag right after take-off and crashed instantly killing all three souls on board.
October 1, 2014: Indian army chopper crashes at Bareilly airbase. Two pilots and an engineer killed.
India loses several highly trained personnel each year to similar freak accidents. No other country in the world has such critically high rate of ‘peacetime’ fatalities in its armed forces. I have highlighted in my previous articles that the Indian armed forces require a massive overhaul. It is the need of the hour to phase out second-hand, outdated munitions stock and replenish the armed forces with technologically advanced weaponry, combat/cargo air-crafts, accessories, and supplies.
