Military pilot dies in helicopter crash

Major (res.) Dudi Zohar (43), an IAF Apache helicopter pilot from Haifa, was killed on Monday night when his helicopter crashed. As the helicopter was landing and had already reached the height of the control tower, the senior pilot reported a technical issue without detailing its nature.

The military launched an probe into the incident, the spokesperson said.

The commander of the Air Force immediately appointed an investigative committee that has already arrived at the base and begun its investigation. The co-pilot was airlifted to the Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva. They were the only two on board.

The cause of the crash has yet to be determined. A team of investigators was dispatched to the scene to look for clues among the wreckage, the army said. The spokesperson added that the entire fleet of Apache helicopters have been grounded pending further review.

According to Israeli media reports, the Apaches were previously grounded after a large crack was discovered in the rotor blade of one.
