Accidents & Serious Incidents involving A109

  • A109, vicinity London Heliport London UK, 2013 (CFIT FIRE HF WX) (On 16 January 2013, an Augusta 109E helicopter on a daylight positioning flight with an SVFR clearance which had just received permission to divert to the nearby London Heliport in central London collided with the jib of a crane which was attached to the top of a tall building under construction, the upper parts of both of which were obscured by cloud. The helicopter was thereby disabled and it and associated debris fell to street level nearby leading to the deaths of the sole occupant of the helicopter and one other person and to several other injuries to persons on the ground. An Investigation is continuing into the circumstances.)
