Incident Details

January 1, 2006 Location of the incident: , Type of Incident:

I was flying around low at a site where several pilots had landed and was taking pictures with my hands on the camera. I thought I was well above the wires but apparently had been descending while concentrating on “getting the shot.” When I looked forward (not at the subjects), a power line appeared right in my flight path. I quickly reached up and pulled the left brake to turn away. Fortunately that worked albeit barely.

Needless to say, I was lucky and this report could have been far worse or have to be written by someone else.
