#Salute to our men in uniform #ServingOurNation🇮🇳 of the #IndianArmy who in an unprecedented feat, successfully repaired an advanced light helicopter Dhruv at its crash site at 18,000 ft at #Siachen glacier and flew it back to the Siachen base camp
The helicopter of 203 Army Aviation was on an air maintenance sortie in January 2018 when it developed a snag and had to be landed in the snow. It subsequently fell sideways due to overnight snow.
In July, a squadron was dispatched from Khanda on a 15-day journey to repair the helicopter. Under extreme climate ranging between -25 to -30 degree Celsius, the team started working on the helicopter under various physical and technical difficulties.
