Narrative:
As the helicopter approached Reisadalen, the commander performed a right hand turn to a northwesterly heading. At that stage, the helicopter lost the height although the commander pulled the collective lever. The helicopter descended vertically and landed hard on its undercarriage. The helicopter got extensive damage. The pilot suffered injuries leading to hospitalization. The Norwegian Joint Rescue Coordination Centre deployed a rescue Sea King helicopter and an EMS helicopter to the site, some 90 kilometres east of Tromsų. The helicopter was damaged and the pilot was brought to Tromsų hospital with back injuries.

AIBN say: Execution of the flight, as well as the results of the blood sample taken four hours after the accident substantiate that he flew under influence of alcohol. His relationship with alcohol has been known in the helicopter community and with aviation authorities for several years.
