Since 2006, 42 UK helicopters have been damaged on landing in Afghanistan. Information prior to 2006 was not recorded centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. In all cases where aircraft suffer damage, the helicopter fleet is carefully managed to ensure that tasking continues to be met in accordance with operational priorities.
