Italian Navy multi-purpose helicopter crashes while landing on the destroyer deck


According to available information, the helicopter crashed during a training flight in the dark. The car landed on the deck of the ship, however, for an undetermined reason, it tipped and fell to the deck on the starboard side. According to the source, the people on board the 6 were not injured, but were sent just in case to the destroyer infirmary. According to other sources, three of those on board the helicopter were injured. The helicopter itself was flooded with fire foam to prevent fire and is not subject to recovery. There are also damage to the deck of the ship.

According to one of the eyewitnesses, the cause of the helicopter crash could be a strong gust of wind that threw the car onto the deck.

The Italian Ministry of Defense confirmed the abnormal landing of the EH-101 (AW101) helicopter on the deck of the Caio Duilio destroyer, but declined to comment on the incident, saying that an investigation is needed to determine the cause of the helicopter crash.

AgustaWestland SH.101 - the main Italian helicopter fleet. The ship and shore-based machine is available in two versions: anti-submarine and multi-purpose.

      No one is safe from this. Of course, I understood the joke, but to laugh at the failures of the enemy is somehow low. If an enemy with a sword comes to you, you need to beat him, and not wait for the weather by the sea ... This may not help

        Your merit in this is not, since you are constantly trying to spit on Russian equipment, not even knowing the principles of its work. Your monosyllables answer about this. And I must admit - the VO site has long lost its position, according to illiterate comments and the same articles.

        mvg (Maxim), another opus of a "specialist"! Shown complete irresponsibility, carelessness simply stupidity of Italians! There are standards and a minimum of helicopter landing, which must not be violated. As a result, the result is obvious - helicopter loss, according to the topic of this article.
        You write crap here, "arranging a sword dance" just to get likes!

    Hasn't Russia been "guilty" of this incident yet? The British and Americans would blame Russia outright and explain that the accident was due to the intervention of Russian horse divers.

    Sarcasm in this case is inappropriate, this is not a military loss, but no one is safe from an accident, especially since, thank God, we are not at war with anyone.

    It's much simpler. They just laid you down quickly. Perhaps I will be banned if some "well-wisher" snitches the mods. We are waiting, sir, already used to their woodpeckerism. hi
