Indian Navy averts catastrophe, ditches Chetak helicopter at sea

A major catastrophe was averted by Indian Navy aircrew when their Chetak helicopter was ditched at sea last week.

The helicopter was part of an Indian warship, which was deployed in the Arabian Sea.

According to reports, the helicopter developed a technical failure. The crew reacted professionally, deftly landed the helicopter in the water and successfully got out from the chopper.

While all three crew members are safe, a board of inquiry has been ordered to investigate the cause of the technical failure leading to the helicopter's loss.
