Helicopter Longline

Does anyone know the length of the longest line ever used in heli-lifting?

A recent visitor to the Swedish Defence Helicopter Unit told us that in Papua New Guinea a Kamov 32 used a 350ft line to recover a downed helo from the side of a mountain - can anyone confirm this? Preferably with pics!
