|Date:||Wednesday 26 July 2006|
|Owner/operator:||Tryco International Inc.|
|Fatalities:||Fatalities: 12 / Occupants: 12|
|Aircraft damage:|| Written off (damaged beyond repair)|
|Location:||35 km NE of Khost, Paktia -
|Phase:|| En route|
|Nature:||Passenger - Non-Scheduled/charter/Air Taxi|
|Departure airport:||Kabul International Airport (OAKB)|
|Confidence Rating:|| Accident investigation report completed and information captured|
The helicopter departed Kabul International Airport (OAKB) at 09:15 hours, en-route to a US-led construction site of future ANA barracks near the city of Khost. On board were 3 crewmembers and 9 passengers. Following normal procedures they were to follow a straight line, locally known as route 150 (due to its course of 152 degrees), to their destination, which would lead them over a high mountain range in between the two locations. The helicopter was operated under Visual Flight Rules. Although the weather at Kabul and Khost was good and fair respectively, conditions in the mountainous area were
marginal at best with low clouds, rain- and possible thundershowers.
The helicopter was flying in a north-northwesterly direction at the time of the accident. It collided with the mountain range just below a slight indentation in the ridgeline.
Because of the lack of data from either data or voice recorder and the limited possibilities to investigate the actual crash site, the investigation team is unable to reach a definite conclusion as to the (probable) cause for the accident. This may alter if any additional information becomes available in the future, at which point the investigation will be reopened as appropriate.
