An army helicopter Cheetah crashed in Reasi, Jammu on Monday at 11:15 am. Reports say that both the pilots flying Cheetah helicopter have been ejected safely. The chopper was flying from Udhampur on a training sortie. The cause of the crash is yet to be ascertained. The enquiry into the whole incident has started, stated Indian Army.

The Cheetah Helicopter is a high-performance helicopter designed for operation over a very wide range of weight, centre of gravity and altitude conditions.

Last year in October, a helicopter of the Indian Army carrying then chief of the force's Northern Command Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh and other officers made an emergency landing following a technical glitch in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch.

The Army's Dhruv Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) with Lt Gen Ranbir Singh and six other officers on board was on a sortie from Udhampur to Poonch when it developed a technical snag.
