Yikes, wonder how that happened, he seemed to get it down, then looks like the power went back up maybe?

Nice to see the airport was on the ball as it looks like the emergency alarm went off right away, and then fire fighteres run in from all over.

Also a possibility to land the helicopter. Big grin  duck 

Good that the pilots are fine!

There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

Obviously the camera foreshortened the distances but it looked very tight, and when it went wrong my first thought was the blades and the guy on the ladder behind!


After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Looked like quite a wobble a few seconds earlier. I'm certainly no pilot but it seemed, perhaps, a bit too rapid to be purely from deliberate stick movements... but perhaps not.

According to an article I've found, it apparently slipped down from one of those helipads on wheels because he landed right on the edge.

Very plausible, the touchdown point for the helicopter seemed a bit high off the ground... damn, that has got to ruin your day...

To me it looks like the helicpter landed with one skate on the graound and one on the helipad, that's why it's leaning, then the pilot tried to adjust but one shkate must have clinched something dragging the chopper down one side.

Never mind ruining your day, how about ruining your no claims bonus!  duck  But seriously thank god that they are ok. It could have been a hell of a lot worse. Especially if it had caught fire! I've no doubt that this film will come in handy at the inquest into the accident!

Excellent response from the fire and rescue people, very quick and efficient from what looks like to be a "small" airport.

I was very surprised that nobody response to my thread some days ago: http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...eneral_aviation/read.main/4033615/

But now (two days later) we have a thread over this accident in Grenchen.  Wink

Wow. It took the airport firefighters EXACTLY three seconds to start the alarm. Impressive!


Am I cured? Slept 5 hours on last long-haul flight...

I just completed eleven weeks of flight training at that airport and saw them land and depart from that helipad a countless times.

Glad it turned out well and thank god there was no fire, since the fuel station is just about 10m in front of the accident site. Also, The quick response by the emergency forces is no surprise, since most firefighters are actually employed somewhere at the airport.

It is a pretty small airfield indeed. No commercial traffic, mainly just SEP G/A traffic. The largest you can find is the odd citation.

What about that guy on the ladder behind him. It is difficult to tell how far he is away, but he looks like lucky to me...
