Greek Apache down Crew safe.

Recommended Posts

I think the flat (ish) impact helped.

 

Not sure I'd like to be strapped in to a crashed Apache, upside down under water! :blink:

Glad to hear that both crew-members got out OK. Crashing helicopters and water are not the best combination. I wonder if it will be repaired?

Like buying a second hand car that's had a major crunch, not sure I'd want to fly it if it is repaired! Looks to me like the spine of the helicopter has broken which I would have thought was pretty serious.

 

If there are any airframe engineers reading the thread perhaps they can offer an opinion?

I guess there's always the possibility it will be broken down for spare engines, avionics and so on....
