Indian Military helicopter crashed, Colonel and a Major Killed

NEW DELHI - In yet another embarassment for Indian Military, Indian Military helicopter crashed in which the Colonel and a Major were Killed.

As per media report, Indian Army's Cheetah helicopter crashed in Bhutan, local media reported on Friday.

ANI news agency reported that the Indian pilot who died in the crash was of Lieutenant colonel rank while the other was a Bhutanese Army pilot training with the Indian Army.

The Cheetah helicopters, commissioned by the Indian Air Force (IAF) in the Seventies, are multi-role aircrafts which are used mostly during high-altitude missions.

The IAF, which relies heavily on Russian-made equipment, has been blighted by a poor safety record.
