Narrative:
A Republic of Singapore Air Force's (RSAF) Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter (AH-64D) has crashed in an open field in the north of Singapore.

According to a statement from Singapore's Ministry of Defence (MINDEF), the helicopter made an emergency landing at the open field between Woodlands Avenue 12 and Woodlands Drive 64. The Apache has a crew of two, and it is believed that the aircrew were not injured in the forced landing as MINDEF said that there was no reported injury to personnel. There was no damage to civilian property, according to the Defence Ministry.

The emergency landing was caused by corroded Anti-Ice Start Bleed Valves (AISBV) in both its engines.
