The Ivory Coast has lost its second Russian-made Mi-24 attack helicopter aircraft after it crashed at Felix Houphouet Boigny Airport near the capital, Abidjan.

The incident occurred on 18 March and the cause of the crash has not been confirmed. Two pilots were injured as a result.

Last November, another Mi-24 was irreparably damaged after it collided with a grounded Mi-17 aircraft in Katiola.

The Mi-24 is widely used by many African Air Forces including 25 in Angola, 12 in Ethiopia, 13 in Nigeria and 55 in Sudan, according to Shephard Defence Insight data.
