Crash In Postville Again? Any Confirmation


Recommended Posts

The CADORS server is down at this moment, but I read about it the other day.


It was a Universal 350B lifting off with an external load, and some control issues as you mentioned, hard landing, pilot ok.

Sharky you are right, it was a Universal AS350, luckily the pilot walked away uninjured.

Further Action Required: No

O.P.I.: Commercial & Business Aviation

Narrative: UPDATE TSB: A Eurocopter AS 350, had departed the airstrip at Silver Spruce camp for Goose Bay, both in Labrador, with one pilot and four fuel drums on a longline. At approximately 200 yards from the strip and at 150 feet above ground, the aircraft began an un-commanded left roll. The pilot attempted to counter the roll with full right cyclic input at which point the aircraft slowly rolled to the right. The pilot was able to turn the aircraft back toward the field in a slow right turn; however, at about 100 yards away, the nose of the aircraft dropped and the aircraft entered a right spiral at which point the pilot attempted to arrest the nose-down attitude. The aircraft struck the ground and came to rest on its left side. The aircraft attitude at impact is unknown at this time. The pilot shut down the still-running engine, turned off the battery master, and exited the aircraft with a minor superficial injury on one hand.
