08-Feb-15 Eurocopter EC145 Toubkal, Morocco

Crashed on snowy mountainside.  Some reports say EC135, but the Moroccan Royal Gendarmerie have both EC135 and EC145 and analysis of the accident photo confirms EC145.  Thus the subject aircraft is one of their two EC145s, CN-BZE (9344) or CN-BZF (9369).  Reports also differ between the accident being on Saturday 07-Feb-15 and Sunday 08-Feb-15.  This video report shows the injured pilot being picked up the next day by the other Gendarmerie EC145 after overnighting in a mountain hut
