Wattisham Apache helicopter emergency landing cuts power


Two helicopter pilots from Wattisham, Suffolk escaped death after their £46m Apache helicopter hit power lines just outside of Ipswich last night (Tuesday).

The Apache from the base where Prince Harry is based was on a night exercise when it caught power lines and had to make an emergency landing in fields between Wherstead and Tattingstone. Luckily neither of the crew were injured although the power line was damaged resulting in a power cut for just under 400 people in the immediate area.
