Thanks for all the help and support from the local fire and ems crews. You all were very gracious and supportive while we were on the ground.

That why SAM puts on classes for LZ's. Been to numerous classes on it myself. You can never have too much training. Not saying that is what happened but keep that in the back of your mind!!!!

Was the chopper affected? It seems like it would have been damaged.

Lucky is the word I would use. Looks like the LZ was too small to begin with. There is no such thing as a minor brush with a wire in a helicopter no matter what kind of tail rotor you have.

I think all of you should know the full story about the helicopter issuse.The Fire Dept is not at FAULT they do extensive training on a number of issues dealing that include "LZ" setups.Did anyone ever care to think that the the pilot was at fault?

I think all of you should know the full story before u start running your mouth about it.The Fire Dept is not to blame for the incident! They have trainging on a number of issues including"LZ"incidents.Did you ever think that the Pillot was at fault!

Hey Bruce maybe you need to know all your facts.....the Fire Dept set up the LZ up and it was to small for them. They are the ones to blame.....the pilot doesnt set it up...and its hard to see small wires from the air....get your info correct

I do know alot of info from this. The fire dept did have the 100x100 area set up the pilot did wave them off and tried to land in a spot he should have. Just be thankful everyone is ok. Dont go blaming peeps if u dont know. Also kudos to the pilot.

The pilot did an awesome job of pulling it out of the wires. Thats what we should be thankful for, that we have GREAT pilots in our area

Why does there have to be blame? It is usually a series of events that lead up to accidents like these happening....lets not point fingers and learn from our mistakes....and be thankful that no one got hurt this time.

steve says ... on Tuesday, Jan 19 at 2:54 PM

Just so you all know the pilot chose to try and land it at a different location then what was set up for him. I personally know the f/f's and they feel bad that this happened. The key is to remember they are all volunteers trying to save lifes and

If this had been covered and reported by the newcenter there wouldn't be so much to discuss.

and....the rest of the story is? Is everyone okay? God must have been watching over, or we would be able to read more.

Fred says ... on Thursday, Jan 21 at 2:52 PM
