Helicopter mishap video
« on: July 08, 2008, 02:24:09 AM »
OK, has anyone seen this one before?

http://www.bielertagblatt.ch/modules/news/news/images/flvplayer.swf?file=/modules/news/news/images/video.asp?id=383&autostart=true&fs=true

I am guessing it happened in Switzerland, judging by the markings on the other aircraft on the ramp.  This guy looked like he had it down, then all hell broke loose on him.  I am wondering if you helo types could explain this.

Holy Crap is right! ::unbelieveable:: Something very heavy must've gone loose with the rotors or such since that seemed like some heavy forces that pulled there!

What happend with the pilot?

He walked away--its old--I heard--pilot error--he tried landing on a cart and was not level--tried to lift off again and was a little "over zealous" and got dynamic rollover--IE hooked a skid.

Not really, people walk away from 99% of helicopter rollovers like that --- even from Robinsons.

The guy in background climbing around on an Antonov was equally lucky not to get hit by shrapnel ::eek::
