A police helicopter of registration 5Y-SFA (Mil Mi-17 Hip) crash-landed meters from the Wilson Airport runway on Saturday, November 2, after it developed mechanical glitches when preparing to touch down.

The chopper had two police officers (a chief inspector and an inspector attached to the Kenya Police Airwing) and a flight engineer on board during the afternoon incident.

None of the occupants was injured in the accident.

A well-placed source told K24 Digital that the helicopter had arrived from Liboi in Garissa County.

The plane was repaired and cleared for take-off.
