Both Pilots Survived This Intense Apache Helicopter Crash

Recommended Posts



Neither crew member was injured, but the helicopter is now part of the Aegean Sea.

A Greek attack helicopter crashed into the ocean while participating in military exercises. The incident, caught on camera by nearby civilians, left both crew members unharmed.

According to The Aviationist, the AH-64D Longbow Apache of the Greek Army was participating in the SARISA 2016 exercises. The pilot appears to have pulled out of a dive too late, making a collision with the water inevitable. Rescuers in inflatable boats are on the scene less than a minute later.

Neither crew member was injured but both were taken to a nearby hospital as as precaution. Greece originally had twelve Apache helicopters but has lost three to crashes.

The crash was similar to one that took place in 2012 in Paktika province in Afghanistan, which was investigated by the U.S. Army for alleged pilot "showboating."
