On April 4, 2011, about 18:05, a Ka-32T helicopter, HL9400, operated by Kim's Solution Co., Ltd. crashed into Machasan (Mt.) at about 70 percent of the mountain's height while transporting building materials for power-line towers to a construction site.

The two pilots were killed, and the aircraft was destroyed.

The Korea Aviation and Railway Accident Investigation Board (ARAIB) determines that the probable cause of the accident was the engines' shutdown due to fuel depletion from both tanks No.2 that supply fuel directly to the engines because a violation of fueling procedures hindered fuel of tanks No.1 and No.3+4 from transferring to tanks No.2 although fuel remained in the tanks.」
