Heli crash reports
« on: 01.11. 2018 20:49 »
Offshore heli's flying over my head & house here in Norway, accident in 2016 happening just a few minutes flighttime from my garden (instant gearbox failure\lock up, rotor detached and flew away, went down like a brick > picture > picture), have found interest in reading reports, great (& dramatic) source of tech knowledge, details and insight.

This f.ex, the story of a few bad studs...
