Chinook claims wire strike

An RAF Chinook of 18(B)sq (ZA683, msn MA014/M7031) was forced to make an unplanned landing on Carmarthenshire farmland near Llangynin, Wales.

The Ministry of Defence says the incident happened on Tuesday evening 28 July. Twin-engined helicopter crew suffered "minor injuries". Military chiefs add the Chinook was on a training exercise at the time.

A 'wire strike' is suspected to be the cause. Pam Windsor, a community councillor in Llangynin, says her electricity cut off after her family heard a "loud sort of droning noise of a helicopter very close by". She says: "We went outside and we could see the Chinook very low, just passing over the village heading towards fields in the distance."

:dunno:

It’s the operators equivalent of ‘alleged.’ ;)

The ‘judgement’ comes as output from the investigation.
