Investigators have discovered the cause of the crash of an IDF Apache helicopter last month during a training exercise, which killed Major David Zohar (Res.) and seriously injured his co-pilot.

Zohar had declared an emergency and returned to the base, where the helicopter crashed.

Investigators found that the control stick had become disconnected after its connection had eroded over time.
