Helicopter makes hard landing, no one injured
A private helicopter taking two Flathead County employees to do some work on a radio tower east of Kalispell made a hard landing near Mount Aenaes in the Jewel Basin.
Sheriff Chuck Curry tells the Flathead Beacon that no one was injured.
Curry says the helicopter from Two Bears Aviation hit a snowfield "pretty hard" Thursday morning and rolled onto its side. He says they were looking for a good spot to land at the time.
A helicopter from Red Eagle Aviation picked up the stranded passengers.
Curry says his office isn't sure why the helicopter went down.
