Two survive ROBINSON Crash in Utah
On July 8, 2013 on 8:30 a.m, a 28-year-old pilot and his 24-year-old student were performing a training exercise in a ROBINSON R22 #N712U when it crashed and rolled downhill in the Tibble Fork Reservoir area of the American Fork Canyon.
Both the pilot and student exited the plane on their own feet after just missing slamming into the mountain.
The emergency response team responded to the pilot’s 911 call, searched the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest and found the wreckage in under an hour after hiking half a mile uphill.
The pilot told 911 that the helicopter was knocked from the sky by a gust of wind.
