The pilot obviously attempted a go-around takeoff, but struck a pine tree and crashed. Two occupants were seriously injured, one passenger died.

  • US/ TX/ Memorial City/ Memorial Hermann Hospital Helipad (1TE6) Ц An ambulance Bell 206-L4 LongRanger IV helicopter (N435AE) made a hard landing during lift-off.

Norway helicopter crash: 13 killed near Bergen

  

29.04.2016/ 09:50 UTC

Norway/ Turoy Island/ west of Bergen

 

The Airbus EC-225LP helicopter (LN-OJF) was flying from an offshore oil rig Gullfaks in the North Sea to Bergen with 11 Norwegians, one Briton and one Italian on board when it crashed Friday by the tiny island of Turoy near the western city of Bergen. The pilots of the helicopter - a Norwegian and an Italian - were CHC Helicopter staff. The 10 other Norwegian passengers were employed by companies including Schlumberger, Aker Solutions, and Statoil. No survivors. The Norwegian Accident Investigation Board said its probe and visual evidence, including video of the helicopter's rotor propelling into the sea moments before it crashed, indicated sudden mechanical failure. All UK commercial passenger flights using the Airbus EC225LP - or Super Puma - model have been grounded by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) following the accident.
