Toll backs an AW139 into a Tree

Heard on the grapevine that Toll was conducting winch training near Lucas Heights and accidentally backed into a tree.


AW wouldn't let them ferry out, so they needed to call in a bulldozer to clear a path to the grounded bird to allow it to be trucked out.


Anyone got pictures?

Good call I say. Why risk flying a damaged aircraft?

A good friend of mine over torqued a Lynx at Merryfield. It came back to Yeovilton on a low-loader. The banter was high but no one was hurt.

Cheers FP

90 per cent of TOLL truck incidents involve reversing into a fixed object. Is this indicative of company ethos.

Surely, this must be HNZ's fault in some way?

Seems if this did occur that it's been kept very quiet? Have still only hard rumours, nothing on ATSB?

ATSB are selective about what they put up. A major air borne event that I have first hand knowledge of, bought about by material failure, will not be found in a search of their data base.

I dont make nasty comments about other helicopter companies just good ones about HNZ. But the facts are that it was BRS S-92 ZUH.
