On 16 October 2020, Armada de Mexico - Fuerza Aeronaval (Mexican Navy) Mil Mi-17-1V helcopter - serial ANX-2220 (construction number 96612) - was severely damaged after a landing mishap at Villahermosa/C.P.A. Carlos Rovirosa (Tabasco).

The mishap occurred during a landing maneuver after the helicopter returned from a from a reconnaissance flight in the area.

It is reported that one person was injured and was transferred to a hospital to receive medical attention.

The Mexican Navy has nineteen Mi-17s in her inventory of which two are written off (ANX-2206 and ANX-2224) and one is now severely damaged, maybe declared written off.

I'm glad nobody died.

It's surprising to see Mexico fly such old Mi-17s while Bell-Textron is pumping out all kinds of helicopters just across the border in Texas.
