Smoke in cockpit causes emergency landing

Have your say

An RAF Lakenheath helicopter has made an emergency landing due to smoke in the cockpit.

The HH-60G Pave Hawk made a precautionary emergency landing at a field in Santon Downham, at 4.34pm, yesterday.

The smoke was caused by a failed windshield wiper motor.

None of the six people on board were injured.

The helicopter had been on a routine training mission when it made the landing, five miles east of base.
