:( the 212 had picked up 9 people on a glacier at the 6,000 ft level. The pilot turned downslope to low and slow and contacted the suface at a high rate of descent. Weather conditions were clear and sunny skies and moderate winds. No on was hurt (thankfully), but the aircraft received substantial damage. Just a reminder to us all of the hazards associated with mountain flying and how we can not "drop our guard" on even the most pleasant of weather days...... :unsure:

He never said where it was, he was driving at the time so it wasn't a long conversation.

 

Driving what ? I hope he wasn't in the process of turning downslope and... Oh never mind... :huh:

 

Before anyone slams me, I felt humour was ok, seeing as only metal got bent this time... :)
