02/01/2000
D-HCKV (photo) Agusta A109A (7345) --- While conducting a VFR flight from Blackpool to a hotel landing site at Newby Bridge, Cumbria, United Kingdom, the pilot approached the estuary off Morecambe Bay, about 8nm from his destination and could see what appeared to be a small shower in the area of the destination. Before turning east he could see that the visibility was going to deteriorate in the shower ahead and he decended further to 500 feet and reduced speed to 80 kt IAS, having the intention to remain well below the cloud base. As the pilot turned east into the mouth of the valley he flew into light drizzle which reduced the visibility to some 4kms while the general overcast and poor visibilty produced a white 'goldfish bowl' condition with no horizon. During a right turn in the valley the pilot noticed that the white misty area ahead suddenly turned dark and then he saw trees about 50 yards away and level. He applied maximum torque and pitched the helicopter nose up but the aircraft struck the trees in a flared attitude. The impact caused severe damage to the main and tail rotor blades including the loss of both tail rotor blade tips. On three of the four main rotor blades part of the blade tips were lost. One main rotor blade spar was bent upwards, and a substantial part of the lower tail fin had been removed. The right side stabiliser was lost and there was damage to the fuselage. The helicopter was vibrating and shaking badly with very low forward speed. He maintained maximum torque and as little speed as possible in order to obtain the best climb gradient to avoid the terrain ahead. With a rate of climb of approx. 1000 feet/min directional control was very difficult and the vibration was extreme. At 800 feet radio altimeter he reduced torque and accelerated to 80kt which made the helicopter much easier to handle. At 50% torque the vibration was manageable. The helicopter quickly broke cloud and the pilot saw Cark Airfield about 4nm away. The ground below was waterlogged precluding an immediate run on landing. A vertical landing would have required high torque which would have increased the stress on the already damaged blades and aircraft structure. He approached the into wind runway at Cark Airfield, maintaining almost constant 30% torque, and touching down at 40kt. The helicopter was shutdown and all occupants exited through the normal doors.

06/09/1972 D-HAQU Dornier-Bell UH-1D Iroquois (8060) --- UH-1D of Bundesgrenzschutz was blown up at Fürstenfeldbruck AB by Black September terrorits who held nine Israeli hostages. Around 10:30 p.m., the terrorists and hostages were transported to Fürstenfeldbruck airport by helicopter. Once on the ground, the terrorists realized there was a trap. Snipers started shooting at them and they shot back. Two terrorists and one policeman were killed. Then a stalemate developed. Officials requested armored cars and waited for over an hour for them to arrive. When the armored cars arrived, the terrorists knew the end had come. One of the terrorists jumped into a helicopter and shot four of the hostages, then threw a grenade into Dornier-Bell UH-1D D-HAQO (c/n 8059). Another terrorist hopped into Dornier-Bell UH-1D D-HAQU (c/n 8060) and used his machine gun to kill the remaining five hostages. The snipers and armored cars killed three more terrorists in this second round of gunfire. Three terrorists survived the attack and were taken into custody. (w/o)

00/00/1964 D-HODE (photo) Westland-Sikorsky 55 Whirlwind Srs. 3 (WA402) --- Capt. Willy Weitzel had an engine failure close to the rig Mr. Louie. He landed the Whirlwind perfectly on the sea, and the helicopter was manoeuvred to the rig and hoisted alongside from its lifting eye by the rig crane. It was suspended there for most of the day until a rig supply boat came alongside and the helicopter was lowered on to it without a scratch. The supply boat then returned to Emden docks where a huge dockside crane was positioned overhead and the helicopter attached, still by its lifting eye. The crane operator was positioned way up in the clouds and when signalled to raise the helicopter, it was snatched off the boat rapidly to height of about 30 ft and then the lifting eye unscrewed itself and the helicopter did its last hover before gently descending back on the boat with a crunch.
