Pakistani Army’s AH-1 Cobra helicopter crashes injuring pilots

The pilot and co-pilot of a Pakistan Air Force gunship helicopter were injured when it crashed in the Cantt area of Gujranwala on Monday.

According to Geo News TV channel, pilots were hospitalized in critical condition.

However, the Associated Press Pakistan says that pilots sustained minor injuries.

During the flight, a sudden technical failure led to a fire in the helicopter, and pilots attempted to land in an unpopulated area.

They jumped from the helicopter with parachutes before it crashed near a cotton factory, getting away with minor injuries.

According to Internet sources, the Pakistani Air Force has about 40 American built Bell AH-1 Cobra helicopters.
