The incidents occurred in late June and then another more serious landing by the same pilot happened during the Valley Fire last month.
Repeated calls to KTVU to comment on the matter were not returned.
The name of the pilot was not known but he went by "Chopper Dan" --in normal circumstances a report is issued whenever there's some aviation incident --so far KTVU hasn't, at least publically, acknowledged its helicopter emergency landings status nor filed a report we're aware of. Sounds kind of murky to me.
But the source says it's not surprising.
" The Fox contract has only one pilot who is over worked/under paid/on call 24-7...Maybe that's why the pilot had a medical condition and couldn't perform underneath the Fox terms and conditions."
Whatever that is.
