Crew injured in army helicopter crash-landing

http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/securit ... sh-landing

All four crewmen were injured when their Vietnam-era Huey helicopter crash-landed at a special forces base in Narathiwat province on Friday morning as it arrived to pick up two senior officers for an inspection flight.

The UH-1H is from the army's helicopter division in Lop Buri. It crash-landed at the Narathiwat special unit base in Muang Narathiwat district about 8.30am.

Officials said the hydraulic system broke down and the helicopter spiralled rapidly to the ground, where it exploded and caught fire.

The blaze was quickly extinguished. The four crew all escaped with minor injuries.

A seen in this photo, the machine landed more or less intact giving people a chance to get out. The above BKK Post photo seems to be after the fire damage was put out. Pete :cheers:
