The villagers of Jakhnauli has an unusual visitor last night. The villagers had possibly retired after a long hot Sunday when a helicopter made a precautionary landing following a technical error. Stunned villagers piled out of their homes towards the field where the chopper engines were raising bedlam.
The aircraft was the much vaunted Apache attack helicopter of the Indian Air Force and had landed in a field in Bhind district, Madhya Pradesh around 9 pm. A video uploaded online shows the villagers gathered around the chopper in the field. All IAF personnel in the Apache were safe.
The IAF tweeted that an Apache AH 64 helicopter had made a cautious landing and the craft and crew were secure. Another Apache had been flown in to help the chopper which had to land. The rectification party had arrived at the location, the tweet said.
The Apache AH-64 is said to be the most sophisticated multi-role combat helicopter in the world. The helicopter is a recent entrant into the Indian Air Force stable when India became the 16th country in the world to deploy it.
Touted as the best attack helicopter in the world, the Apache saw action in Afghanistan and Iraq. In Iraq, it struck out the nodes of the air defence systems ahead of bombing raids by UAF jets. The helicopter has been also a favourite target of opponents with several Apaches being brought down in Iraq during the insurgency following the toppling of the Saddam Hussein regime.
