Robinson R44 Raven II, G-SPAL
The pilot was returning from Perth (Scone) Airfield to a private landing site at night with one passenger on board. As he was about to begin manoeuvring in the vicinity of the landing area, the passenger slumped across the flight controls and shortly afterwards, the helicopter impacted the side of a hill in level flight at slow speed. The pilot was able to free himself from the wreckage but the unconscious passenger was fatally injured in the subsequent fire.
