Safety bulletin on the ground collision involving CBN Truck and Bell 412 helicopter, NAF 600

The collision occurred between a moving Central Bank of Nigeria truck with registration AKD 765 FK and a parked Nigeria Air Force Bell 412 helicopter with registration NAF 600. The CBN truck was conveying cargo to a CBN chattered Boeing 737-400 with nationality and registration marks 5N-RKT.
The truck driver did not see the rotor blade of the helicopter and thought he was far enough to pass through without touching the helicopter itself. Misjudgment of the distance between the trailed compartment of the truck and the helicopter main rotors, coupled with the driver’s inability to see the tips of the main rotor blades of the Helicopter was the major cause of the incident.
The incident occurred 15:30 h in daylight.
