Helicopter Mi-17V-5 crashed in Afghanistan

A Mi-17V-5 helicopter from the Afghan National Army crashed in Afghanistan. Several people died as a result of the incident.


The Ministry of Defense of Afghanistan reported on the crash of the Mi-17V-5 helicopter, which crashed at midnight from Tuesday to Wednesday. According to the military department, the helicopter "crashed on takeoff", the reason is called "technical problems". The incident took place in the Khesarak district of the eastern province of Nangarhar.

Unfortunately, as a result of this incident, one crew member and one officer of the Afghan National Police were killed, two others were injured.

- it is spoken in the message of the Ministry of Defense.


In turn, the Ariana News TV channel, citing its own sources, reports on the crash of two military helicopters and the death of 10 servicemen. According to the TV station, Afghan National Army helicopters crashed to the ground while landing at night. The radical Islamist Taliban movement (banned in Russia) claimed responsibility for the helicopter crash.

The Ministry of Defense of Afghanistan does not comment on this information in any way.

Note that in mid-October this year, at night in the Nava region in the Helmand province of Afghanistan, two helicopters of the country's Air Force, carrying wounded security forces, collided in the air. The collision resulted in the death of 15 people.

      When something is given for free it is not appreciated. The attitude to everything is like on a collective farm in the USSR.

      If they bought it for their own, they would take care of it, and so the Americans or Russians will give them as much as they need, but people are not considered valuable there at all.

        This is a long process to prepare pilots, so you can leave the aircraft without crews.

          Not only depends on the pilots, you also need to have maintenance specialists. And they may be more important.

            Technicians do not die in helicopter crashes.

              Here you are right, technicians do not die, but the lives of pilots largely depend on them.

          Yes, what kind of pilots are there, there are carriers. In Afghanistan, now they are probably not taught like in Russia for 5 years, but according to an accelerated American program in 1,5 years, or maybe even faster.

          So they have Ishak's driver there, after a week of retraining, is fit to fly! :))) And if someone's dad asked for a very brotherly and gave a lot of rams, then they will be allowed to steer the plane :) Film Kandahar pancake about this is remembered as our The Russian crew taught these incapable of thinking baboons to pull levers, watch alarms, and poke buttons with toggle switches on the IL-76 ..

        In fairness, I must say that the conditions of Afghanistan impose very strict requirements on the level of training and discipline of the flight and technical personnel. And the Afghans are not doing very well with this. But this is a headache for Americans. The acquisition of Mi-17 helicopters in Russia was financed by the United States.

        Do not offend collective farms, colleague! The state farms had the attitude that you are writing about.

      Yes, they often crash helicopters, although they are much easier to maintain than American ones. Here it is not clear why the engines did not turn off and continued to thresh at full

        It's that simple! The Mi-8 (17) does not have an automatic engine shutdown system. Engines are turned off by the crew with "stop cranes" or "fire cranes".

      Everyone who didn’t buckle flew out of the windows, and those who didn’t buckle sat as if they were alive.

    Did Azerbaijan shoot down, or did it happen by itself?

    There, the leading shepherds become pilots: if the rams did not run away from him, they did not fall into the gorges, the wolves and eagles did not drag them away, according to statistics, they pass well, then they are suitable for pilots!

    Pakol, pirantumbon, donkey and caramultuk are the basis of the life of an Afghan ... And they were presented with a helicopter. It’s clear that there will be losses and equipment broken by stupidity ..

    Russian helicopters are the best in the world, but there are no pilots from foreign donkey drivers.
    Am I right? wink

    But as soon as the Taliban took the lead in taking responsibility for the crash. Although the photo clearly shows that the helicopter really fell from a small height (it did not explode, almost intact only on its side).
