Moments before the helicopter used by PNP Chief Gamboa and other generals crashed

MaxDefense Philippines Facebook web page uploaded a video that taken moments earlier than the helicopter utilized by Philippine National Police Chief Gen. Archie Gamboa and 7 others crashed in a residential space in San Pedro, Laguna.

In the video, it confirmed that the 2-year-old Bell 429 GlobalRanger helicopter’s rotor wash brought on the mini mud storm and resulted in zero visibility.

According to the witnesses, the zero visibility made the helicopter hit an electrical cable that brought on them to crash close to a residential space.

Several followers of MaxDefense Philippines imagine that the crash gave the impression to be as a result of human error.

“Poor judgment on the pilot area is not safe for Heli ops…second thing air assets should be used in PNP ops..the area is accessible by land they should have opted for land travel,” netizen Gaad Flores stated.

“I look throughout the video carefully, I know why the chopper crashed, the pilot did the wrong move. Why? The pilot didn’t do a vertical take-off but instead, the Pilots taxied the chopper a forward take-off to gain speed for immediate take-off. I guess situational awareness is the problem here. I understand that the pilots cannot see their point of view because of the dust. But they should be aware of the cables since they received “adequate training”. The Pilots ought to be conscious that, it’s a unhealthy concept to do the ahead take-off on low altitudes since there are cables close by. Not to say my father was within the chopper,” Juan Paolo Magaway commented.

 “It’s harmful for helicopters to fly straight up excessive, a “vortex ring” may happen which implies shedding raise as a result of there isn’t any air contained in the house, the pilot because it has no visibility might need tried to fly excessive vertically, however a vortex ring occurred, he might have observed he’s shedding altitude regardless of going into full energy, thus he must tilt the helicopter in any path to flee the vortex however he’s too low now that he hit the ability strains. mud may be a offender clogging the engine filter and shedding energy,” netizen Mark Ramon Caniosa remarked.

Aside from Gamboa, Major Generals Jovic Ramos and Mariel Magaway, his comptrollership and intelligence heads, respectively; PNP Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Bernard Banac, an aide, a technician, and two pilots survived the incident and dropped at the closest hospital.

However, Ramos and Magaway are in “critical condition.”

The PNP goes to be briefly led by Deputy Chief for Administration General Camilo Cascolan.

A particular job group was shaped to analyze the chopper crash.
