Any insights from the two videos on controllability? Cabin, tailboom and rotor system all look intact, rpm. As a group we waxed on endlessly about the 169 with a T/R problem, but so far nothing from here. Not all of us can be a Richard Moffatt and successfully land an AW139 without a tailrotor (he did it into HK harbour from the challenge of a full power climb), but he proved it was possible.

I've seen that Leonardo had some release regarding this accident today - does anyone here have access to it ?

Yes - it says based on the preliminary findings of the investigation there are no airworthiness actions needed.
