Stirling Helicopters in a Huey/204? The Bell mediums do seem to be having a wretched run, I wonder if/when the fire agencies will say enough is enough…

Belly hooking with a medium is amateur hour stuff. The whole industry suffers thanks to higher insurance premiums all because someone with a whack of money and a lack of skills decided they wanted to lease a medium.

I wonder if the minimum 100 hours on type requirement was met?
