Air Ambulance pilot misjudged phone line - March 2011
In the video, the B.C. Air Ambulance helicopter can be seen attempting to take off from McNeil Road in Pitt Meadows, BC - Canada. The helicopter turns to the left as it ascends, causing the tail rotor to strike the telephone line, shredding the wire to pieces. The helicopter immediately lands in field next to the road, separated by a deep ditch.
