Kiunga Accident investigation

Kiunga accident: Pilot unaware of ‘attachment’

According to the Accident Investigation Commission (AIC) preliminary report, the accident occurred on February 15th where the longline was attached to a net carrying three full 200L metal drums containing diesel fuel.

The preliminary report, however, falls short of stating whether this is the actual cause of the accident. However, it notes that investigations are ongoing.
