Narrative:
During a landing to load off personnel, an external load was attached to the helicopter by longline without the commander being aware of it. At lift off, the long line tightened, and the commander experienced a jerk in the helicopter that made him decide to make an emergency landing in terrain with birch trees. The rotor blades and the landing gear sustained damage. Pilot was uninjured.
