obviously not the correct place to start a discussion on helicopter accidents but you've stated 4 there. Yes there are more, mechanical failures account for so many. Pilot error a few. but put in context with the amount of helicopter flights taking place around the globe on a daily basis. Anyway, we digress. We can save this for another thread in Rotorheads I'm sure. As a full time helicopter pilot I have to trust it won't happen to me if I do all I possibly can to mitigate the risks. ie esp when spending hours searching the English Channel for downed fixed wing aircraft.
