Brasilia Fire Dept. Helicopter Crashes

Fri Aug 10, 2007 4:30 am

Around 2 pm today a Helicopter from the Brasilia Fire Department crashed over the city dump during a body rescue procedure. This was some 30 km from BSB / SBBR.
It seems that the strong wind blew their hook straight into the tail rotor causing the helicopter to fall.
Three firemen died at the scene.

Haven´t got the whole info yet, but i guess it was one of their AS 350 BA (Esquilo).
