The Swiss Air Force had to ground its fleet of Airbus Super Pumas during investigation after a military helicopter crashed into the Alps, killing two pilots. As reported by Reuters, they are now resuming flights. The investigation showed that there was no evidence of a systematic fault. Reports have been made that the craft touched a power line before it crashed, but the exact details of the incident are still undergoing investigation.

This crash has been the latest in a series of unfortunate crashes for the Swiss Air Force. In June the European Aviation Safety Authority grounded two types of Super Pumas, after a H225 accident in Norway in April.
