24-Aug-20 C-GRCT Bell 206B Porcupine Plain, Canada

Helicopter was applying herbicide to a wheat field with only the pilot on board. After clearing a row of trees, the helicopter began a slight descent. While rounding out to continue the application pass, the spray boom made contact with the crop and the pilot lost directional control of the helicopter. The helicopter veered to the right and then collided with the terrain. The operator’s ground loader responded to the accident site and brought the pilot to hospital for assessment. The pilot sustained minor injuries and the helicopter was destroyed by a post impact fire.
