When the helicopter approached an area with reduced visibility, the pilot-in-command elected to perform a precautionary landing on a snowcovered field. The helicopter had a slight forward movement and this, in combination with a slightly firm landing, made the helicopter tip over on its side. The helicopter was substantionally damaged. None of the occupants where injured. This report is in Norwegian only. No safety recommendation is issued in connection with this investigation.
