27-May-17 VT-ENX Airbus AS365N Ahmedabad, India

Helicopter was flying from Manekpur in Valsad to Himmatnagar when the engine reportedly heated up.  Successful safe emergency landing made.  VVIP – the Chief Minister of Gujarat (Vijay Rupani) was on board.  The actual helicopter involved has not yet been identified and may have been a replacement in any case – after other issues with the CM’s helicopter earlier in the year.

Rupani was travelling with his personal secretary Shailesh Mandaliya

Registration assumed from a photo of the CM’s helicopter posted online by the Gujerati Government
