Israeli Air Force confirms loss of military transport helicopter

The Israeli Air Force press service confirmed the loss of one of the military transport helicopters. We are talking about the rotorcraft Yasur. This is the Israeli name for Sikorsky CH-53.


Reports say the Israeli air force helicopter caught fire in the air. Flames engulfed the engine, after which the car began an emergency landing. But in the end, it was not possible to save the helicopter - the rotorcraft completely burned out.

Emergency landing took place in the northern part of the Negev desert, in the area of ​​the settlement of Beit Kama.

A senior IDF officer noted that the cause of the fire was a technical engine malfunction. Rumors are denied that the helicopter could be fired from the ground. Such rumors arose against the backdrop of reports of a new phase in the exacerbation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and that machine-gun fire was opened from the Gaza Strip over Israeli aviation».

The head of the local fire service Avi Arush:
Fortunately, those in the helicopter managed to leave the car before the arrival of fire brigades.

We are talking about three crew members and 11 other military personnel.


According to recent reports, the engine ignited at an altitude of about 170 feet (about 52 m). The IDF press service reports that a helicopter in the troika of such vehicles flew to one of the bases in southern Israel to participate in the exercises. An emergency landing occurred in about a minute.

An investigation has begun, during which they will try to find out what specific technical malfunction can be discussed.

Yasur helicopters (Sikorsky CH-53) in Israel have been regularly used for military transport purposes for the past 50 years (since the 1969 year). Earlier it was reported that these helicopters plan to completely withdraw from service the IDF Air Force by the 2025 year. The update is going to be made through the acquisition of new American-made helicopters.

      It seems to me that the accident statistics of combat helicopters for technical reasons and pilots' mistakes in the world are many times greater than the number of cars shot down by enemy fire. Or someone often tells a lie.

      The helicopter caught fire at an altitude of 170 m 20 km from Gaza.

      Palestinians, like, 20 km in lithak have nothing to shoot.

      There is someone to take an example.
      According to Americans in the Korean war of the 50s, according to the proud reports of the rescue service for pilots of downed planes, pilots were saved so much that dividing them by the number of lost planes (recognized by themselves), it turns out that the planes were 4-seater. Average.
      And this is without taking into account the "unsaved".

      We can say so big village, to hide the fact of the downing or accident is not possible because of the specifics of the country. In fact, all flights of this type of helicopters were stopped until the causes of the accident were clarified. In addition to the crew, there were 11 soldiers on board. Everyone is alive, this is the main thing, to hell with a helicopter.
      We are also being shot down and no one is hiding it. Soldiers conscripts in the Air Force serving the aircraft are pretty chatty and not possible to hide. Another issue is that the number of those shot down is not pleasant for someone, so which belfry to look at. There are too many of them with mine, I don’t know with yours.
      Your right to believe or not to believe. It is important for me that they would yell about downed planes and missiles, but at the same time, all targets should be destroyed, and the pilots would sleep at home after landing. I wish the same to your Air Force.

      Yesterday the "friendly" to Russia did not have a good day. The French in Mali collided with two helicopters and burned down -13 dead, the Israelis lost the turntable, but at least there were no casualties.
      And a week ago, on November 20, near the village of Pangram in Logar province in Afghanistan, the United States lost a helicopter and 54 people on board. Well, it seems like the Taliban "helped" this.

    I flew this in the 90s. As in an old electric train carriage with torn skin. The cockpit is not separated from the "saloon". Benches in length. The helicopter was led by a sergeant for 20 years.
    The "bottom" of the helicopter is open - you can see the starry sky. In general, it was uncomfortable.
    Moreover, underfoot boxes with mortar mines, grenades, all garbage.

        different helicopters, different price
        The world's most expensive helicopter - the American CH-53K King Stallion - has risen in price by almost 7 percent and will now cost customers $ 138,5 million.

        Sikorsky S-70 Black Hawk for Poles 20 million apiece, excluding additional options
        http://bastion-karpenko.ru/s-70-uh-60-black-hawk/
        F-35 approximately 85-90 million

        At 1.5 - 2 in total.
        New "Stallion" Stallion pulls over $ 80 million. Chinook - 40 million
        Israel, like, chose the Stallion
        Personally, I like Chinook more.

          I also like Chinook. In vain the Russians hacked their Yak-24. they are very successful for landing. one Chinook fell with us, exactly the one in which I managed to fly. in the Athos region fell .. there were a lot of interesting people on board. so nobody believed in fairy tales about the fact that he himself fell. diversion of pure water. the helicopter is good. but I don’t know anything about the Stallion .. I didn’t fly, I didn’t see it.

    So the priest is open - this is in order to get out faster, for this there is no partition in the cab. But the sergeant is 20 years old - you can only envy him - he was not stuffed with higher mathematics, sopromat and MLF, and he could not pinch grass on the concrete

      I think that the warrior was mistaken, there are no sergeant pilots in our Air Force (they were in the USSR at the end of 30 and at the beginning of the Higher Military School) unless, of course, pilotless drones (tactical level) are considered as pilots. The course is difficult, they throw it out until the last week, at the end they assign the rank of lieutenant. previously it lasted 2 years with a penny (without obtaining a degree), now it has increased to 3 with a penny, but they are studying concurrently at a civil university. at the faculty of choice. Mathematics, physics (aerodynamics, sopromat ....) are taught in full. Well, the outfits at the very beginning, like everyone else, for that and the slag.

        Yes. I have already corrected in PM.
        There were two: the sergeant was at the helm, and a lieutenant was standing over his shoulder (I thought he was an instructor). So they explained to me that the one sitting was a flight technician, and the standing one was a helicopter pilot. Then I did not delve into it - I was worried.
