Military aircraft include fixed-wing airplanes and helicopters, which can be summarized into two categories: combat or non-combat. Depending on the aircraft’s purpose, it can be designed to fly low to the ground, move fast and maneuver in tight situations, and transport troops or military equipment, such as tanks and machinery.

Accident Causes

Given the nature and purpose of military aircraft, accidents do occur—sometimes in battle and sometimes in training. Military aircraft accidents can occur as a result of:

  • design or manufacturer flaw,
  • landing error,
  • mechanical failure,
  • midair collision,
  • pilot error,
  • poor maintenance,
  • traffic control error,
  • weather condition,
  • and more.
