There's a very large set of power lines that runs along the side of the valley and through the gap in the hills that the R44 was very close to. Would not be surprised if he has hit them.

Mostly just a continuation of what's already been happening for years - mix of 139's and 189's, based in Karratha, operations out of Karratha and Learmonth.
