AH-64 Apache helicopter crashes in front of beachgoers in Greece


Shocking footage has emerged of an AH-64D Apache Longbow of the Hellenic Army crashing into the Aegean Sea yesterday.

The $65 million dollar weapons system is the third D-model lost out of the 12 that were procured by the Hellenic army, and comes at a great loss to the already cash-strapped nation of Greece.

The helicopter was taking place in the Greek SURISA ‘16 combat exercises over the Strimonikos Gulf near the northern Greek town of Asprovalta. It is believed to have belonged to either the 1st or 2nd Attack Helicopter Battalion from Volos.

According to The Aviationist, both the pilot and copilot-gunner miraculously survived the crash. The cause of the crash, however, is unknown.
