Rick Westra Op-Ed On Wire Strike Accident


Recommended Posts



Some time back, a pilot named Rick Westra wrote a very moving piece about his tragic 2010 accident in Colorado involving a helicopter wire strike and the resulting crash that left himself seriously injured and his wife perished.

The story was written as a safety tribute in one of our helicopter publications but for some reason I cannot locate the story now.

Does anyone out there have a link to the op-ed that Mr. Westra penned?

I've searched a lot and can't come up with the copy. And assistance would be greatly appreciated.
