A Chetak helicopter of the Coast Guard made an emergency landing, immediately after it took off, to avoid a bird hit at the Navy airport in Kochi on Tuesday.

There was no injury to the two occupants in the helicopter. However, the copter’s undercarriage was damaged during the landing, Coast Guard sources told PTI.

“After the take-off, before its forward journey, the copter made an emergency landing to avoid a bird that came in its way,” they said.
