Narrative:
The Heli-Lift International Bell 204B helicopter, C-GSHK, was on contract to support drilling operations in the vicinity of Stoney Rapids, Saskatchewan. The pilot was transporting drill equipment to a new drill site by long line. Shortly after take-off, there was a reported problem with a door on the helicopter and the pilot released the external load. Approximately one minute later, a loud crash was heard and black smoke was evident from a site approximately 4 km to the west of the drill site that was being dismantled. The pilot suffered fatal injuries. The helicopter incurred damage from impact forces and the effects of a post-crash fire.
