Israel lifts remaining Apache flight restrictions

Israel has returned its air force's fleet of Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopters to full operational status following a fatal crash earlier this year.

Tel Aviv grounded the fleet in the wake of the 7 August accident, but subsequently allowed a limited return to flight.

However, it has now lifted any remaining restrictions on the Apache fleet.

A final report into the crash blamed the fatal crash at Ramon air base on incorrect installation of a tail rotor control rod.

One crew member was killed in the accident, and the other seriously injured.
