Further Action Required: Yes

O.P.I.: System Safety

Narrative: UPDATE Supplemental information received from J.R.C.C. Trenton [2007/08/30]: NAV CANADA staff at London F.I.C. reported an overdue Bell B-206 helicopter (due into Cochrane at 0030Z). Expedition Helicopters, owners of the overdue helicopter, provided additional information and commenced a ground search based on a private citizen report of hearing a helicopter in distress. J.R.C.C. Trenton staff requested the assistance of the Ontario Provincial Police North Bay detachment for the ground search (due primarily to low ceilings and fog in the area). A 424 Squadron Hercules aircraft (RESCUE328) and Griffon helicopter (RESCUE419) were both tasked. The helicopter (which had in fact crashed) was located by local authorities. There was a subsequent fire (which was out of control for a while) which was started by the pilot after the crash. The pilot (the lone occupant) survived with minor injuries and was transported via ambulance to Cochrane Hospital. The SAR air assets returned to base. T.S.B. action was initiated -- no further action required. Case closed. Timing: Hercules (RESCUE328) - 1.8 hours; Griffon (RESCUE419) - 1.9 hours.
