Overhead Power Lines Kill More Aircraft Occupants

RETA has just updated Airplane, Helicopter and Hot Air Balloon Accidents Due to Overhead Power Lines. Since we last updated this document on October 5, 2014, there have been 12 reported accidents where fixed-wing aircraft or helicopters hit power lines, killing 5 people and injuring 7.

If power lines were buried like all of our other utilities, these and hundreds of similar accidents would not have occurred or impacts would have been less severe.
