A Nigerian military helicopter on a surveillance mission crashed today in Adamawa State.

Premium Times reports that the helicopter crashed in the Damare area of the state, which is a suburb of Girei Local Government Area.

A Yola-based journalist is said to have revealed that there were arms and ammunition on the helicopter, and that some foreigners were on board.

The crash site is reportedly close to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) temporary camp, that is currently serving as a base for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the state.

Additional information is yet to be revealed.

    Why wont they crash? when we still use relics from the 60s and 70s in our “air force” corruption will not let us buy modern crafts but will enable the military brass retire rich and the poor folks will fly these archaeological engineering relics.
    No self respecting nation will use crafts that old, so old the parts have to be sourced from the manufacturers on a specially made basis because they are no longer produced and have long been scrapped. or similar failed nations with similar crafts. I expect by now all our air force choppers should be Apaches, Chinooks, our jets should be Eurofighers, F-22s and NOT alpha jets or MiGs used in Biafra war and Liberia civil war.
    Age may be sacrificed for ships as their engines can be replaced with new ones and water reduces effects of heat on metals but not planes that are exposed to the effects of aerodynamics, heat and G forces in high speed manoeuvrings
