Tail rotor failure, spun out of control.

The fact that anyone survived that shows just how well the crew compartment is designed.

This picture gets 5 stars because it really sparkles my curiosity. I cannot believe how 'neat' this crash site is! Normally, when an aircraft crashes, one sees debris everywhere, and the aircraft itself becomes almost indistinguishable... a pile of rubble at best. But here, the helicopter looks as if it has imploded, which almost every piece of it located roughly where it would have been before the crash. It looks almost as if it has been chopped to pieces, like in the case of the poor, faithful B-52's at AMARG, and left there for satellite verification purposes.. _Zoydian.
