Blue blades, short exhaust stack, no heat shield.......it ain't no h125 aka as350b3e. Interesting way to fold her up for improved stowage in the hangar though 10 points for effort (not)

New episode of Planet Earth BBC

.
When in danger ( If a British pilot approaches him for example ), the French squirrel (scientific name H125 or AS350) uses a defense mechanism common to certain animals : the anatosis which is a behavior in which animals take on the appearance of being dead.

Corallary to that question is " If you don't write it up, it didn't happen".

Pilot only minor injuries.Landet not close enough to fuel spot. Wanted to go closer. Lost control after lifting into hover!?
(Speculation now - maybe his LG got stuck in the ground as it is grass. Dynamic rollover??)

Right. So, one of those debriefings with the CP over coffee, where this is no coffee.

That's why they call it the tail BOOM.

The write-up on the MR said "Blue blade obstructing pilot's vision."
