Maui Helicopter Crash

Jump to last reply

I wasn't sure I should post this but it really disturbed me and I know others on this board who have flown a helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian so I thought I'd share.

"Two nuclear engineers were killed on their honeymoon when their helicopter crashed and exploded into flames while they flew over the scenic Hawaiian island of Molokai.
Michael and Nicole Abel, from Murrysville, Pennsylvania, had been married six days when their tour chopper lost altitude and smashed into a ridge after a freak attack of bad weather Thursday.
A beloved tour pilot, Nathan Cline, and two Canadians from Ontario also died in the horrific accident that has shattered families thousands of miles away."

For more on the story and photos:

This was the same helicopter tour company we used in Maui this past summer, Beyond that, it was the same tour, the same helicopter and the same pilot that we had. Nathan Cline was the pilot and he was great. I feel so bad for his family and the families of the other victims. This was a little too close to home for me and my helicopter flying days are probably over.
