A Bell 412 helicopter carrying Air force personnel including a high ranking officer made a precautionary landing at grounds in Katupotha this morning, due to a suspected technical fault.

The Air force refused to confirm whether the Commander of the Air force was on board during the emergency landing

Speaking to Daily Mirror Online, Air force spokesman Air Commodore Andrew Wijesuriya refused to comment regarding the identity of the passengers on board.

“As a policy we do not disclose the personnel or rank of those on board, nor do we disclose the destination.

We are now taking measures to rectify the suspected defect” he said.
