A Helicopter on a mission to support AMISOM troops crashed soon after take-off in Balidogle in the Lower Shabelle region of Somalia on Friday.
All four soldiers aboard the helicopter were rescued and are in a stable medical condition.
Amisom said the aircraft belonged to the AU mission’s Aviation Unit from the UPDF.
The UPDF deployed choppers in Somalia in July last year to help in the fight against Alshabab militants.
In January last year, a Uganda People’s Defense Forces-UPDF helicopter crashed on a training mission in Bulo in Gomba district.
The Jet Ranger AF302 killed Major Naomi Karungi, a UPDF Helicopter pilot and Benon Wakalo, a cadet pilot.
