HB-XVB crash in June


I recently saw a video of a crash of an AS350B2 in Grenchen, Switzerland from June 2008.

During the video the helicopter looked to wobble quite a lot prior to touchdown and then come to rest with one skid higher than the other, as though he was trying to land on a small platform but one skid was off it. Unfortunately the camera view of the landing area was obscured and it was not possible to see why the helicopter was at an angle.

The pilot subsequently lifted again, with a high yaw and roll rate and crashed. The pilot was fortunately ok.

Does anyone know what he was trying to land on?

He was trying to land on a trolley, or a 'dolly', depending on where you come from. Thread address below.
