Indian Air Force (IAF) chief V.R. Chaudhary met Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday and gave him a detailed presentation on the CDS chopper crash inquiry report.
A tri-service inquiry was ordered after the crash to probe the reasons of this accident. It is believed that the MI-17v5 pilot may have been left disoriented by inclement weather and accidentally flown into terrains. This is referred to as CFIT or Controlled Flight Into Terrain.
