The following newspaper article appeared in the June 1998 :
KINDERSLEY, Saskatchewan — Three men, including the CEO of Rotary Air Force, Inc., were killed earlier this month when two RAF gyroplanes collided near Kindersley during an air-to-air filming session.

Killed were Daniel Haseloh, CEO and part owner of RAF; James Allcock, a flight instructor from Kerrobert, Saskatchewan; and Edward J. Peterson, a video photographer from Shiloh, Georgia.

RAF manufactures two-place kit-built gyroplanes.

Haseloh, 43, was flying solo in a company-owned RAF 2000 GTX SE at the time of the crash. The second aircraft, also a GTX SE, was piloted by Allcock, who was 52. Allcock’s aircraft was owned by Full Circuit, his company.

Peterson was flying as a passenger in Allcock’s aircraft, shooting for an RAF promotional video.

The Canadian National Transport Safety Board is investigating the accident, but the company said preliminary findings indicate that severe updrafts and thermals may have forced the two aircraft together.

A company official said videotape recovered from the wreckage indicated that the two aircraft were flying at about 400 feet AGL over a stubble field when they converged and their rotor blades came into contact.

The accident happened about 4 p.m. June 6. All three men died as the two craft tangled and crashed to the ground. There was no fire.

The spokesman said Haseloh had logged 4,500 hours in gyroplanes, and Allcock had 1,000 hours of gyroplane time.

The company said it was shocked by the fatal accident, but is determined to carry on.4
