Narrative:The pilot was spraying at low speed at low level when the aircraft struck a high-level wire carrying power for fencing. A briefing on wires was given to the pilot by the farmer and a recce carried out with the property owner on board. The briefing had not covered this particular wire, however, as it had been overlooked by the property owner. Property owners should be aware of the extremely serious hazard posed to agricultural aviation by unmarked wires that they erect on their property.
