An Army Apache helicopter was forced to make a controlled landing in a field in a Maryculter field this week.

The attack helicopter, which had been taking part in a training exercise, landed in the field at lunchtime on Monday.

The Apache was taking part in Nato’s Operation Joint Warrior training exercise.

It was flying to the airfield at Kinloss Barracks in Moray from West Freugh near Stranraer, Dumfries and Galloway.

Both crew members on board were uninjured, with troops guarding the helicopter, worth millions, over night on Monday.
