212/412


Recommended Posts

I asked for it to be deleted because it would be a simple deduction as to who my source was!

 

A 412 put his bucket through the blades of a 212 hovering over a water tank which ended up on fire in the tank thrashing itself to death. It was in Europe, and the 412 managed to land safely, even after hitting the 212's blades with his own.

 

Dunno what happened to the 212 driver yet - more as I get it.

Thanks Phil, hope the 212 pilot makes it. Tragic accident for the 412 driver as well.

A roughly translated version from Babelfish, which I sincerely hope does not take away from the magnitude of the tragedy. Rough, but you'll get the gist of it. Just horrifying in any language.

 

Two helicopters hit when they choked a fire in Bayarque

They were taking water in a raft and they fell in that zone had only to transfer to one of the three occupants until the Hospital of Trick although with minor wounds

 

The population of the Mountain range of the Filabres lived the day on yesterday with the soul in vilo by the frights that did not let follow one another. A fire, that was declared shortly after the four of afternoon in a place of Bayarque finished in an accident between two helicopters of the Infoca which they were taking water in a raft when, according to eyewitnesses, they hit and one fell to the dam whereas the other landed of unavoidable way in a near land. Everything happened afternoon on the eight of precipitadamente in the place the Reconco, that is between the municipal terms of Tíjola and Serón.

 

The tragedy that was afraid in principle was not so. Luckyly, only one of the three occupants of both helicopters - models Bell 412- had transferred until the hospital of Trick (Granada) to be examined of their wounds that, in principle, also were slight.

 

He was the pilot of the ship that fell to the dam whereas the copilot who accompanied to him found in perfect state, scare to a side, like the companion who left the other airship that he had to make a forced landing in earth. Although the delegate of Medio.ambiente in Almeria, Juan Jose Luque, explained to IDEAL that will be Civil Aviation and the own Council of Medio.ambiente those that they will analyze the causes of the accident, witnesses of the happened thing assured that a slight shock between Bell 412 took place both.

 

Choked fire

Be as it is, whereas the sanitary cash, the firemen of Albox and Trick and the agents of the Civil Guard approached to aid the pilots, the rest of its fellow workers in the extinction of the fire followed hands the work. It had already been declared as stabilized the fire and tried to refresh the perimeter, according to detailed Luque. In addition, everything aims, according to the first indications, to that the fire was deliberate since from the beginning they were located to three different centers in the well-known zone like Cortijo Juan Oller.

 

It was not easy to give by controlled the fire that followed with force until the 21,00 hours and that ended up devastating 35 hectares - according to the first estimations of pine and scrub. In order to end the intense flames 10 technicians had themselves to put hands to the work; four agents; five trucks autobomba; a meteorology unit; seven helicopters; three airplanes; 11 detents and one brigade composed by a technician and more effective of those than habitually conform a detent - call BRICA -.

 

First in arriving at the zone they were, by proximity, the specialists who are in the center on which the Infoca in Serón counts although they were ended up adding up to two helicopters of the Ministry of Medio.ambiente, according to the information facilitated on the part of the Infoca. In that sense, Luque needed that the device of fire extinguishing is open to the necessities that are registered in the community Andalusian and who the means that are used can be displaced from any point of the territory. In that sense, sources that form part of that device commented to IDEAL that one of the helicopters victims was destined in the Cedefo de Serón whereas the other corresponded to the BRICA. In addition, they considered that the accident was not more serious since the fall took place from little meters in the air and needed that the raft that became instead of the event finds in front of the quarter of Villegas. Once the situation was controlled, Luque commented that one of the people in charge of the service accompanied the only wounded to Trick to verify its state and that was had predicted to continue with the workings of refreshment of the zone set afire during all the night. The main subject of conversation last night in Serón, where they are of celebrations, and in the near towns could not be another one.
