Did not ditch. It had engine failure during hover flight with underslung load of concrete while building a ski lift. Crashed into the cliffs and the captain died. The co-pilot lost his hand. I was pilot in the company and took part in the clean up after the accident

11sep87 was the actual crashdate. I was on the RDAF crew that flew the co-pilot to Denmark for medical treatment, just checked my logbook for correct date
