... you beat me to it. The pilot of the 407 must be partially blind, the plane is approaching from the drivers side.


PS: OK, I apologize to the fixed wing guy, after looking at it for a second time I realized that the fixed wing guy never even saw the helicopter, his view was obstructed by the wing. If you don't believe me go and sit in a cessna 206, 172 etc and see what you can see. ...


You beat me to it with the view/wing obstruction.


Another factor (a factor-not an excuse) might be the sun. Judging by the shadow of the Bell, the Cessna was approaching from the direction of the sun.

Okay here are some points to ponder



1 Jan implies in reply #3 that the incident was in Bonn Germany


2 So if this is the case was ATC involved? and in what language ( English/German) and where both pilots aware of the local traffic?
