All crew members reportedly died when a Navy Helicopter crashed in Gwadar, Pakistan, on Monday.
The Publisher Nigeria learnt that the Pakistan Navy helicopter crashed today while flying during a routine training flight in the coastal town in southwestern Baluchistan province.
The Navy was said to have confirmed in a statement that a technical problem caused the crash. However, the Navy provided no further details, saying an investigation into the crash has been launched.
AP reports that a video clip of the crash at its reach shows the helicopter turning while apparently trying to regain control and then breaking apart and plunging to the ground.
It was gathered that crashes during training missions are fairly common in Pakistan.
Authorities rarely release details of military training crashes and investigation reports are also not made public.
In September 2022, an army helicopter crashed during an overnight mission in Baluchistan, killing all six military personnel on board.
