Excerpt from Term Paper :

The aircraft collided with power lines. The flight was being operated without a flight plan being filed under the required rules. Visual conditions prevailed at the time of the accident and due to the accident; the commercial pilot and passenger received fatal injuries. The helicopter was destroyed. The flight had started at 1835 and according to the operator the pilot had a standard pattern of usage which included delivery of cargo to a facility and the carriage of a passenger was not authorized. A witness on the ground said that the helicopter was flying at a low altitude in a terrain of a pasture with many trees. This was about 4 nautical miles south of the airport from where the pilot took off. Then the witness saw the helicopter run directly at the power lines that crossed the valley and the witness ran to avoid what he though was to be an imminent collision. According to the witness the helicopter ran into the power lines, then fell on the ground and burst into flames. When the engine and transmission assemblies were examined, it was seen that the turbine was split apart at the power turbine support and almost half of the accessory gearbox was destroyed by fire due to the impact. The compressor showed foreign object damage on the trailing edge of the inlet guide vanes and on the first stage of compressor blades. (ATL02FA003)

Conclusion:

Thus it is clear that though a lot of studies have been made about foreign object damage and accordingly rules...

...

Yet it is a good subject for advertising and we still have statements coming out like "Studies have shown that the NOTAR system is less vulnerable to foreign object damage than the tail rotors of conventional helicopters." (MD 600N: Features and Benefits)

Airport Rescue and Firefighting Approximately half of all aircraft accidents take place when the pilot is bringing the plane to an initial approach, a final approach, and the phases of landing at an airport (Richardson, 2003). Fewer than 31% of airport accidents occur within "200 meters of the centre line of the active runway," Richardson reports, and within "1,500 meters of the runway threshold," which is the Critical Rescue and Fire
