Deadly 206 Crash

Recommended Posts

as soon as i saw it on the news/ the colours almost have to be either a current or former Canadian bird, red and blue without a doubt thats has been a canadian helicopter, news said it was leased to sevral people to fly for training,



having lived in penticton all my life there is NO doubt in my mind that that heli does or has belong(ed) to CHC


As all my thoughts to the young lady's family :(



Edit in: the BC bud thing, this doesnt seem to me to fit the way they do things, haha when they left the one here it was owened not leased and was unmarked, also was equiped with parephenailia (man thats a big word) but everything else kinda points that way, no idea why the heck the american bird was there

Skids, the 206 parked on the reserve last Fall was ALQ. Neither the registration nor the S/n (1649) shows on the TC registry yet.


Here's a brief history of AHV, I sort of recall that this may be one that suffered an engine failure in Terrace about 5 years ago ???

Hey guys,


As I had indicated I recognized the colors. It was FAHV like Skids Up indicated. It was operated by United but more recently Pinnacle Reef Explorations Ltd according to Transport Canada.


Cole you are right it was a CHL aircraft but had since had the blue repainted to a silver colour.


As i said before my thoughts are with the girls family.
