PNG Longranger Accident

I heard that a Longranger crashed in the hills of Mt Keegan a few days ago.

It appears it is an Australian registered machine, from an operator in Emerald, Qld. I wonder how CAA allow this? Who was the PNG operator?

Does anyone have any more info?

Safe Flying.

PNG CASR Part 119.105 and Part 119.107 refers.

Rather than bewail the plight of the owner, who can only be the one who is well known from that area,
I ask
how is the driver - any idea who?

From a reliable source, the pilot and all on board are OK.

The helicopter was also operating under a PNG AOC.

Blackhand.

So there was more than one on board when it crashed with a sling load?????

Only one was pulled off the hill, so there could be others lost in the mist on the hill Blackhand.

And whose AOC Islands Nationair or a derivative of ?

Correction

Hey Nightbeetle
Thanks for the correction.
Must have misunderstood when I was told "all" okay.

Not working in PNG - but know some of the players.

Cheers

Pilot is OK. Owner was mislead by those he was working for.

Sanguma man. "Pilot is OK. Owner was mislead by those he was working for."

Sanguma man, that's rather a cryptic post and rather pointless unless you are prepared to elucidate further.
Are you going to keep us interested, and informed, or do you just get a kick out of being special and in the know?

Sanguma Man,
Not really any happier. That post is even more meaningless than your other one.
We already knew the pilot was okay by the second post!
I was hoping you would enlighten us as to the circumstances of this accident, to which you allude some considerable knowledge.
It is hoped that this forum can provide some information, and possibly education, to those that frequent it.
However, I can see I'm flogging dead horse and don't think there can be anything useful come of this exchange with you. I'll leave you to it.
