High Voltage Lines and Helicopters
As part of RETA’s ongoing research on the benefits of burying high voltage power lines vs the negative impacts of above ground lines, we have run across many examples of helicopters crashing into overhead lines, causing death and injury.
On the basis of news reports, crashes occur under a number of circumstances including during: take off and landing, crop dusting, drying moisture off cherries, military training, and sudden altitude loss. Two examples are reported by the Associated Press and KTLA News.
