Heli Ops Posted April 17, 2003 Report Share Posted April 17, 2003 Helicopter pilot''s quick stop costs more than expected 17.04.2003 A pilot''s dash to spend a penny has cost a Queenstown helicopter company $1.5 million. Glacier Southern Lakes general manager Pat West said the pilot left the new Eurocopter 120 running when he stopped to relieve himself at Mt Tutoko, near Milford, on his way to pick up two hunters. Looking back, he saw the helicopter skid along the ground before falling down a bank. "It is pretty well totalled," Mr West said. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
