Helicopter Accident - Engine Failure

Recommended Posts



Anybody out there have any info / confirmation that Bailey Helicopters suffered an engine failure in a Bell Long Ranger in the Fort Nelson area this week? There's nothing in the press about it. Heard the pilot did an incredible job saving the aircraft....




Confirmed. Engine failure on T/O Wednesday at Helmet, north of Fort Nelson. Successful auto into shallow riverbed. All aboard safe.
