    Default UPDATE

    KMGH (Ch7-Denver) is reporting that the helicopter was an Aluet(sp?) Lama 315B model contracted by the USFS through Geo-SEIS of Ft. Collins, CO. The pilot was the only one on board. He died.

    Records show that 7 of these models of French mnf. choppers have crashed since 1995.

    Chrash site was on the NW perrimmiter of the containment line and was helping ground crew douse hot-spots.
