The air accident happened on Monday 6 April 2020 in connection with sling loads for Statnett, the system operator of the Norwegian electrical power system. A container was to be moved. Because of a misunderstanding, the container was put in the wrong place. The container was to be moved further, but a strong wind gust came when the long-line was about to be tightened. With the container still on the ground, the commander lost control of the helicopter. The helicopter hit the ground with the right side and the main rotor. The commander only got minor abrasions and bruises. The helicopter wreckage is transported to the Accident Investigation Board’s hangar at Lillestrøm for documentation of the damage. The Appareo Vision 1000 recorder is secured.
