The Secret List www.FireFighterCloseCalls.com
We regret to pass on that a firefighting helicopter crashed today (Thursday) while combating a wildfire in northern Portugal, killing its Pilot who had earlier dropped off a crew of Firefighters near the fire. The helicopter had apparently hit a high-tension wire before crashing and burning.
It was the second helicopter to have crashed in as many days while helping extinguish Portuguese wildfires that have broken out following a spell of hot and dry weather. In Wednesday’s crash, the Pilot was lightly injured.
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
