    Seven dead as IAF Mi-17 V5 helicopter crashes in Arunachal Pradesh
    • Unconfirmed reports said there were six people on board the Mi-17 V5 helicopter, which is a military transport chopper
    • The helicopter reportedly crashed around 6 am Friday while it was on an air maintenance mission
    • A court of inquiry has been ordered

    NEW DELHI: An IAF Mi-17 V5 helicopter crashed Friday morning near Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh killing seven people.

    Five of those killed were Indian Air Force personnel and two were Army officials.

    The helicopter reportedly crashed around 6 am Friday while it was on an air maintenance mission. A court of inquiry has been ordered.

    The chopper was flying in Tawang sector, bordering China.

    In June 2013, an Mi-17 V-5 helicopter had crashed attempting rescue operations during the Uttarakhand floods. As many as 20 people were killed in that accident.

    PTI reported in July that Russia last year handed over to India the final batch of three Mi-17V5 military transport helicopters under a previously signed contract with Rosoboronexport, a company of the Rostec State Corporation, that entailed a total of 151 units of the Mi-17V-5 helicopter, produced by the Kazan Helicopter Plant.

    Designed to transport cargo inside the cabin and on an external sling, the Mi-17V5 is considered to be one of the world's most advanced military transport helicopters.

    Mi-17V5, supplied to India, ranks among the most technically advanced helicopters of the Mi-8/17 type, incorporating the best engineering solutions of previous generations.

    This Mi17v5 with army personnel onboard was carrying army supplies of multiple cans of kerosene and the chopper exploded in the air itself.

    So its not a technical fault or pilot error

    Not exploded, parachute got entangled with tail rotor while dropping. I don't know how that could happen. Maybe the pilot descented the chopper or high wind?
