Pakistan Navy Helicopter Crashed in Gwadar

A Westland WS-61 Sea King helicopter from the Pakistan Navy reportedly crashed shortly after taking off near Gwadar, Balochistan. The unfortunate incident led to the tragic loss of three navy personnel on board: Lt Cdr Jawad, Lt Cdr Hamza, and LUWT Hasnain.

Preliminary information from media sources indicates that the crash may have been caused by a technical issue with the helicopter’s engine.

It’s important to highlight that this is not an isolated occurrence. Since the introduction of the Westland WS-61 Sea King model into the Pakistan Navy’s fleet in 1977, there have been three documented accidents of a similar nature, two of which resulted in fatalities.
