On landing the basket touched down once, lifted back into the air and touched down a second time about 10 metres further on. The landing was not heavy and it was described as normal by an expert witness. The basket remained upright throughout the landing. One of the passengers apparently shifted position during the landing sequence and this resulted in her receiving a broken ankle. This accident was not the subject of an on-scene investigation.
