HELICOPTER CRASH IN KILLINGLY
The tragic loss of two pilots
- Tore Haugland and Allan Osmundson,
was felt by many in the performance
The two pilots lost their lives
flying the helicopter cross country.
They were flying the Showcopters
R44 camera ship, when they crashed
on the evening of June 14, 2004.
The two pilots were enroute to
the big airshow at Quonset Point, Rhode Island.
Showcopter #1, an R44 performance
helicopter, is normally flown in
performances and filming jobs by
Jim Cheatham, and
occasionally in filming jobs by
Bob Bolton or Chris Gularte.
When the airship is filming, a
cameraperson sits in the rear of the 4 place aircraft.
The crash occured at night, while
passing through Killingly Conneticut.
This is a sad anouncement relative
to the several aviation projects currently in production
at ALL PLANET.
