A US Army Apache helicopter crash during a training exercise in Washington state Monday night, March 25, has once again reignited concerns about the safety of these attack helicopters.

Yet Another Crash

Uh oh. Looks like the trusty Apache attack helicopter is back in the hot seat after another “aviation mishap” in Washington state. This time, two pilots got bumped and bruised during a routine training exercise.

While they thankfully walked (or maybe limped) away, the incident has everyone scratching their heads about what’s going on with these warbirds.

A Recent History of Trouble

This isn’t exactly the first time we’ve seen Apache mishaps.

Just in the past two months, there have been two other crashes – one near Salt Lake City that left some Utah National Guard pilots feeling worse for wear and another in Mississippi that ended tragically with the loss of two soldiers.
