Helicopter with Senior Officers in Emergency Landing


A Yanshuf (Owl) helicopter with senior officers aboard, including ground-forces commander Sami Turgeman, was forced to make an emergency landing, Thursday evening, after a bird hit its rotor, shortly after takeoff from Mitzpe Ramon.

The chopper landed in the area with no injuries but damage to the main rotor blade. The senior officers were transferred to another helicopter.
