Jim, with the gearbox change being accomplished in January, it looks like it's time to wait for the sharp eyes to look at what came down with the rotor head and how/where it failed structurally, as well as determining what, if anything, the main blades hit prior to the head separation. Time for the accident investigation pro's and the OEM design/test people to look at the evidence. Still would be of interest to know what the short flights were all about.
