    Looks like he jumped off, got caught by the right main gear, cleared and ran off. It could have been worse if he landed wrong or whatever and got that tail bang his head.

    If I recall correctly the tail rotor linkage snapped when he hit the ground hard. After that there's really not much you can do.

    My guess is the tail rotor quit out when it hit the ground, it just hadnt stopped spinning as the heli lost control. So it looked like it was working.

    Hmmmmmrp. Even when it had touched down, it still had its tail, its tail rotor as well.

    What puzzled me is what could had caused this making the helicopter goes swinging and eventually crash on its side after tail section dug in and desintregrated upon impact on the grass.

    ?
    I dont think wind did that to the heli. Maybe the wind caused it to hit its tail rotor. Thats what happens when I chopper losses a tail rotor. (or is that what you ment?)

    I was actually talking about the obvious spin ? I dont know if you did noticed that but its certainly the first time I se a helo entered this kind of approach and were tworn into this uncontrollable spin.

    Looks to me like the tail rotor hit the ground and quit out. Glad everyone was ok.

    1/5/2006 - Incredible up close footage of a military helicopter crashing. It looks like they are trying to land but get pushed back up by a gust of wind. Unbelievably we are told everyone on board was ok.
    Hopefully the line there quoted from Break is true. Hope they survived.
Working...
