After an emergency landing of a Taiwanese helicopter, military officials disappear

26

An emergency landing by a Black Hawk helicopter is reported with Taiwanese senior military officers on board.

Communication with the Black Hawk helicopter, owned by the Taiwanese Ministry of Defense, disappeared on Thursday morning, the Global Times wrote on Twitter. On board the helicopter were thirteen ministerial officials of the island, among them the chief of staff Sh. Imin.



Information about the forced landing of the car was distributed by the Taiwanese Ministry of Defense.

At the moment, it is known that in the morning this helicopter made an emergency landing in the north of the island, in a mountainous area near the city of Ilan. There are still no reports on the exact location, rescuers have not yet reached the helicopter.

The information comes in quite contradictory: for example, in some media it is indicated that ten out of thirteen people have already been found alive. Obviously, the search for three passengers is ongoing.

            The chief of the General Staff of Taiwan, Shen Yiming, died after an emergency landing of a helicopter of the defense department, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the China Daily newspaper.
            Yes, the professor was right, and the Taiwan Ministry of Defense deliberately lied, claiming that Shen Yiming was among those who were found alive. Even a press conference gathered. Why is this a lie?
            And professors and Gennady I will pass - it will be so honest

    Are they scattered in different directions after landing? If some passengers were found, and some still wandered somewhere.
    It seems like the military should have been organized to act in a critical situation.

      I have the same impression after reading the headline. Like, the helicopter landed, and the military fled to wherever.

      Judging by the appeared glades, the helicopter landed unsuccessfully on the slope and then rolled down the slope. Probably people were thrown out of the helicopter while it was rolling. Among the survivors, they probably managed to buckle up or were thrown away and not crushed by the body.

    Taiwan is a country that has sheltered Russian emigration scattered throughout the Southeast and the Russian diaspora in the amount of up to 18 thousand people has been preserved there. But due to the political situation, the comrades on Smolenskaya do not even imagine that they may be countrymen. This is not Russian, it is something alien. Not Chaldean.

      Dear, you somehow faintly imagine the device of the Russian Federation. It is not necessary to apply to the Russian Federation the standards adopted in bourgeois societies (capitalist states). The Russian Federation is not a capitalist state and society in it is not bourgeois. Therefore, everything happens differently. According to other patterns.
