Christmas Tree Placement Accident

Recommended Posts

I know everyone is saying wire strike, and judging from the amount of cables around that is very possible. Could ground resonance be a possibility? Watch his left skid tube just before it gets exciting. It looks like he puts it on a pole.....


This is beaten to death on pprune, alternate position video shows pilot descending with longline cable still attached, lowers himself to an altitude which a ground handler can reach the line, gives it a yank, and the line, still attached to the top of the pole, comes in contact with the MR, rest is history
