A Hornbill Skyways Bell 206 helicopter with four people on board crashed near the remote Sarawak-Kalimantan border in Ulu Balleh, Kapit Division, in Sarawak, Malaysia, on Monday (25th July 2005).

The helicopter was chartered for an aerial mapping trip and the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) lost contact with it at about 2:30pm. DCA notified the state police operation room of the missing helicopter at about 2:45pm.

The Malaysian Police Air Wing were dispatched to help in the search and rescue operations initiated by the DCA.

The search and rescue team saw smoke coming from the crash site at about 6pm but the fate of the four people on the helicopter was not known. Fading light prevented the search and rescue personnel from reaching the crash site.

Long Singut is only accessible by boat on a two-day journey from Kapit in the upper Rejang basin.

The four missing are reported to be pilot Capt Razali Sani, a solider and two surveyors who were on an aerial mapping mission in Long Singut, a Kayan-Kenyah settlement.
