From the link:

"The 59-year old pilot noticed that something was wrong [sic] and attempted and emergency landing in a field. During landing the helicopter struck a garden shed and fell on its side. The helicopter sustained severe damage in the accident. The rotor and gearbox were found 40 meters from the helicopter."

Aesir, that's a Huey not a B205. Still beautiful though.

For those wondering, a Huey has the tail rotor on the left side, rotating downwards with the rotor downwash, but for the 205 they made a flip-flop tail rotor and rolled it onto the right side, so the tail rotor is rotating upwards into the downwash. Makes it more effective.
