Two Blackhawk helicopters, which crashed in Mineral Basin at Snowbird on February 22nd, were removed on March 2nd by the Utah National Guard. The Nevada National Guard assisted with the removal, bringing in a CH-47 Chinook to lift the aircrafts away from the resort. The two helicopters were brought to Heber City’s airport, were they will be loaded up and taken back to the Utah Army Aviation Support Facility. One of the helicopters did hit a tree while being removed, but otherwise the task seemed to be a success. KSL5 has full footage of the entire removal over on their website, which is linked here.
#breaking @KSL5TV Chopper 5 video shows the moment a Blackhawk helicopter is lifted from #Snowbird after crashing last week. Full disclosure this is video of video, but it's still cool. A slight hiccup when it hit a tree, but it's safely en route to Heber Airport. pic.twitter.com/Ft4RAVx40L
