Global News published this video item, entitled “Deadly Canadian Forces helicopter crash linked with software glitch, report shows” – below is their description.
A Canadian military investigation into the deadly crash of a Cyclone helicopter off the coast of Greece last year has revealed that a software glitch played a major role.
The military’s flight safety directorate says manual inputs to the flight controls overrode the aircraft’s automation system, causing the naval helicopter to plummet into the Ionian Sea, killing all six personnel on board.
Ross Lord reports on what we know and the recommendations the report makes to prevent future incidents.

In This Story: Cyclone
In meteorology, a cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure. Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure and typically bring winds, rain, high waves and storm surges to the areas they pass.
In the Atlantic and the northeastern Pacific oceans, a tropical cyclone is generally referred to as a hurricane (from the name of the ancient Central American deity of wind, Huracan), in the Indian and south Pacific oceans it is called a cyclone, and in the northwestern Pacific it is called a typhoon.
