06-Nov-12 Bell 206L Chincolco, Chile

Helicopter crashed during agricultural work.  Pilot reported as Hernán Cabrera, age 47.  Distant photo shows helicopter landed upright in the crop, although tail does not look quite right!  Chilean sources are quoting the accident as a UH-1H, but we do not agree – see the two stabilizer end-plates, definitely a LongRanger!
