Summary

The pilot had been briefed on a number of treatment areas some days earlier. When he approached this area he did not see the powerline. At the end of the first spray run he flew into the wire. The helicopter developed a vibration and the pilot landed as soon as possible. Inspection found that one main rotor and one tail rotor blade was damaged and required replacement. He had been advised of the presence of the wire during the earlier briefing.
