Tourist Helicopter Crashes into Huge Bird

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Kampong Chhnang: On March 17 at 11:30 am, a tourist helicopter carrying 3 passengers from Phnom Penh, collided with a large bird mid-air and was forced to make an emergency landing on a farm in Steung Chrov Village, Borribo district, Phnom Penh.

Fortunately they landed safely and another helicopter came to pick up all passengers, while a specialist was called in to repair the damaged helicopter.

They crashed in Kampong Chhnang, but flew off elsewhere after the accident. Maybe some Chinese tourists/businessmen going to Sihanoukville to check their investments. There are a lot of red helicopters landing here in fields all over the place.

Probably hit the bird because the pilot couldn't see where he was flying with that huge piece of cardboard covering the windscreen...
