Indian Air Force AH-64E Apache helicopter makes an emergency landing on farmland

31

From India, there are reports of an incident with a helicopter of the country's air force - the emergency landing of a helicopter. We are talking about the helicopter AH-64E Apache, which was forced to land on agricultural land in Hoshiarpur (Punjab), where peasants were working at that time.


According to recent reports, the helicopter took off from a military base in Patancot. After about an hour of a planned flight over the terrain, the crew commander reportedly reported a “critical failure” and was forced to make an emergency landing.

From a report from the Indian Ministry of Defense:

The commander, faced with a crisis situation, made the right decision. Actions were quick and correct. The helicopter landed safely enough. No harm done. No damage was caused to property and people on earth.

The report said that the technical services will inspect the helicopter for subsequent troubleshooting.

It is noteworthy that the first helicopters of the AH-64E Apache version began to arrive in the country in the fall of 2015. In other words, the helicopter in which the named “critical malfunction” has shown itself is new. In total, under the contract with the Boeing company, the Indian Air Force should receive 2020 of these machines by the end of 22.

      Indian pilot well done, he was able to land a car. And we do not need to rejoice - we have the first and only fifth-generation production aircraft crashed. And the F-35 is more than 300 serial and only one has fallen during this time. Feel the difference ... and now don’t be shy, minus it, because I didn’t succeed in fumbling, because it’s a shame for the power ...

          Yanek, will you show me the photo of the burned and numbers of all 7 aircraft? I know that one was on fire and the plane was rebuilt. In any case, we are unfortunately far from them. But you have one more iron argument against the F-35: a pregnant penguin, good for nothing. Sound, do not be shy)))

      Something very quickly "Apaches" began to fail. Or the gnarled handles of the Indians or the so-so helicopter?

        To begin with, our equipment participated in this order, but lost, because the females offered a distinct radar, war-tested missiles. Superplus went about. The production of all the buildings is only in India. Contrargumnts?

            What is the point of finding out for us. Are you worried about the problems of Indian rotteries? Or is it gnawing that our dragonflies are not being buried for some reason ... they lost their leadership in this sphere, take off, nishtyak, and then according to the situation.

              The problem lies in the fact that one Apache costs like three Mi-28s. Hence the question - is it worth it? Buy a fashionable, mattress helicopter if it is no better.

                Is there a price tag for the cost of helicopters or have you unsubstantiated behind the patriotism ...? But in vain, until it’s time, shift your fervor until August.
                The Americans, for a minute !!!)))), localized the release of these combat vehicles, now every hull will be labeled "Made in India." Well, what is there about the price or the Helfayer bad rocket?))) Calm down ... As a result of the competitive battle, the USA team won. Do you know why? The Indians thought to bypass the military air defense of the Pakistani tank divisions.
                more long-range missiles of American firms coped with this task. The managers also showed their superiority. Consider the factory sold to the Indians, and most importantly ...! ... tied the Indians to themselves for at least half a century

                  What exactly is collected in India? In Ukraine, they also assemble the UAV "Fury" - they bring parts from China, in Kuevo the pioneer circle "crazy hands" collects, but it says "Made in Ukraine".

        Okay, I agree the helicopters are not so hot!
        Then it was necessary to buy submarines from us - they do not fall ... or Kalashnikovs ...
        In short, you need to buy something with us, because the Americans are bad guys.

          Maybe they aren’t so hot with you, but in Russia they are one of the best in the world, reliable, no worse than any Apache. And you don’t have to deal with cheap anti-propaganda here.

    I just want to recommend to Indian pilots .. to read the classic of Russian literature Ivan Krylov "Quartet"


    - Naughty-Monkey, Donkey, yes clubfoot Bear
    They started to play the Quartet.
    We got notes, bass, viola, two violins
    And sat on a meadow under sticky -
    Captivate your art light.
    Hit in the bows, tear, but no sense.
    “Wait, brothers, wait!” The Monkey shouts. “Wait a minute!”
    How do the music go? After all, you are not sitting like that.
    You with the bass, Misha, sit down against the viola,
    I, prima, will sit against the second;
    Then the music will not be the same:
    We will dance the forest and mountains! "
    Settled, started the Quartet;
    He is still in tune with her.
    "Wait, I found a secret, -
    Donkey screams, - we really get along,
    If we sit next to him. "
    They obeyed the Donkey: sat down decorously in a row,
    Still, the Quartet neydet fret.
    Here more than ever they went to the analysis
    And the debate about who and how to sit.
    Nightingale happened to fly their noise.
    Here, asking everything to him, so that they can be solved by doubt:
    "Perhaps, they say, take patience for an hour,
    To Quartet in order our lead:
    And we have notes, and we have instruments;
    Just tell us how to sit down! "-
    "To be a musician, skill is needed
    And your ears are poorer,
    The Nightingale answers them. -
    And you, friends, no matter how you sit down,
    Everybody's not good at musicians. "

    India ordered from Boeing in 2015 22 Apache Guardian combat helicopters and 15 Chinook transport helicopters. The amount of the transaction amounted to about $ 3 billion.
    In 2017, the Indian government agreed to purchase another batch of 6 AH-64E Apache attack helicopters for a total of $ 654,6 million.

    maybe they better buy F-35 for 80 million? and cheaper, and stealth, and then fly, and the radar is a new afar)

    What quarantine, these peasants didn’t even know what is, they don’t even have televisions, and then there’s such a sight, they will still tell their great-grandchildren. It is like ours in the 20s of the last century.
