IAF chopper crash on December 8 that killed Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Gen Bipin Rawat and 13 others was due to an unexpected change in weather that led to the aircraft’s entry into clouds, resulting in spatial disorientation of the pilot and the aircraft inadvertently hitting the terrain. The probe ruled out mechanical failure, sabotage, or negligence as a cause of the accident.
