Robinson R22/44 Tail losses

TV news tonight shows a R22 helo with no tail feathers crashing. fatal to two.

Australia has had two like accidents, if I got it right, but as yet no comment from the accident people ATSB, the FAA or Robinson re this. Could the lose of tail feathers be related?

The Australian ATSB people are asking for input from pilots and maintainers asking for any information re tail boom issues. That came after the first one, a fatal.

There has been a second one in Australia but no mention if it was the same type of event, lose of the tail boom in the air.
