The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is urging pilots and operators to report all wirestrikes to help identify safety hotspots, even if there’s no damage to the aircraft or injuries to people on-board.

A new ATSB report released June 28 shows that almost 100 wirestrikes were never reported between 2003 and 2011. Under Australian law, aviation accidents and serious incidents, such as wirestrikes, must be reported.
