Three in a week.

An R22 mustering helicopter crashed in Central Queensland a week ago with no injuries.

A Hughes Notar came to grief on a ship off the Central Queensland coast this past weekend, pilot got out with a squall approaching and helicopter trashed on the deck. No injuries.

Now we have a Bell 206 Jetranger in St Albans with some injuries, I hope they are not too badly hurt .
It has not been a good week.

Actually FOUR in the week

You missed the Rotorway Exec 162F which crashed a couple of days ago at Mt Beauty in Victoria, killing the pilot/builder Andrew Mull. His dad was the local CFA captain, and got called to the air crash, not knowing that it was his son's chopper that was involved. He arrived on scene first, and unfortunately couldn't get his son out of the aircraft before fire consumed it. Dreadful.

Andrew had recently been written up in a magazine about his building of the kit Rotorway.
