Lakenheath: Helicopter Fills with Smoke
A helicopter from RAF Lakenheath has been forced to make a precautionary landing in a field after the cockpit filled with smoke.
It happened on Tuesday afternoon and they landed in a field around five miles east of the base at Santon Downham.
The fault was caused by a failed windshield wiper motor.
The Pave Hawk helicopter, which had six people on board, was on a routine training mission when it made the landing and the base say the pilot followed emergency procedures and landed the aircraft with no injuries.
A maintenance crew responded to the incident and fixed the aircraft within six hours.
Normally the helicopter is past of a Squadron that conducts day or night operations in hostile environments to recover downed aircrew or other isolated personnel during war.
The cause is under investigation.
