The Polish military command confirms the incident with the helicopter during the exercise. The exercises were held in the south of Poland, in the gmina (administrative-territorial unit) Uscie-Gorlitsk near the Slovak border.


The Black Hawk helicopter of the Polish army made a hard landing in the meadow. Officially, the reasons for the hard landing of the American-made rotorcraft are not reported.

At the same time, local sources say that the helicopter hooked a power line with a screw during the operation to drop the soldiers of the special purpose squad. As a result of damage to power lines, several settlements in southern Poland were left without power supply.

According to the latest information, the helicopter was damaged. At the same time, according to the Ministry of Defense of Poland, there were no casualties during the emergency landing of the Black Hawk.

It should be noted that at the moment Black Hawk helicopters are operated in a number of countries around the world. Poland is one of these countries. At the same time, in Poland, American-made multipurpose rotorcraft "Black Hawk Down" are used exclusively in special-purpose units. To date, the Polish troops have 4 such helicopters, several more S-70i Black Hawk were purchased in 2019-2020 for the police. At the same time, it is known that helicopters for police structures were produced under an American license at the PZL Mielec plant.

    "As a result of damage to power lines, several settlements in southern Poland were left without electricity." (c) The local population did not decide that the Russian aggression began?

    The power lines could not withstand the "Black Hawk Down", broke off under its weight and the hawk dropped to the ground.
    The population of Polish hawks has declined.

    Well, what happens. It's just not worth maneuvering near the power line, because more expensive for yourself.
    several settlements in southern Poland were left without power supply
    We created a situation close to a military one. I doubt that the population is delighted with such exercises.

    a similar situation happened in 2014 (I was just in Poland) - a helicopter with their official fell there. It happened near Warsaw. Moreover, the situation was one-on-one as with Kachinsky: the official forced the pilot to descend, he refused at first - it was dangerous, the power lines were nearby, the official threatened to be fired, the pilot was forced to go down - they caught the power lines and fell.

    it seems that their life does not teach anything ...

    What's the hard landing? The helicopter collided with a power line, with an artificial obstacle. This is a collision, not a hard landing. Netherworms.

    The helicopter is good and reliable, if you don't use Yandex navigator or Google. Everyone is alive, that's good.
