An AAF Agusta-Bell AB 212, operated by Luftunterstützungsgeschwader, 2. Leichte Transportstaffel, was conducting a night-training flight in a field near Pramet, Ried im Innkreis, when it rolled during lift-off and subsequently crashed, possibly having gotten stuck on something. The helicopter came down on one of three crew members that had just disembarked, rescuers on a hoist training mission. He was pulled clear by colleagues but was seriously injured. The helicopter caught fire and was destroyed, the two pilots and one engineer still on board were able to evacuate. Five crew members suffered minor injuries.
