A Philippine Air Force chopper made a precautionary landing on Tuesday afternoon in Zamboanga City.

The Huey (UH-1H) combat utility helicopter with tail number 504 encountered an in-flight emergency after it departed the Edwin Andrews Air Base past 3 p.m., said Air Force spokesperson Maj. Aristides Galang.


This prompted the pilots to make an emergency landing in Barangay Ayala.

“The aircraft incurred damage but the pilots and crew members were not injured. The PAF sent a team to conduct investigation,” Galang said. /vvp
