Immediate question: night hems to non pre surveyed sites, safe initial approach and landing aside, even if using NVG, how easy in reality is it to mitigate the risk of wires? Given how this was missed with multiple tools and attempts to survey on the ground. Despite crews best efforts it still happened. Iím referring to the overall need for this level of risk, not crew actions which it appears were in keeping with OMA/OMC procedures.

The military would have put this down as "operational hazard". The crew made good efforts to mitigate risk and good decisions after the incident.

Try reading the report. It states in the history of the flight there were two pilots.

Did someone delete a post? I see no other comments about how many pilots were on board.

Given that the patient was ultimately transported by road, presumably successfully so, and presumably not medically contra-indicated in the prevailing circumstances, why was the helicopter there in the first place?

I believe the psychic call taker was off duty that night!
