And don't forget the BK117-850D2, which says D2 but isn't an EC145. It is actually a B2 with upgraded engines.

That's a bold statement crab.

Just because a blade is missing doesn't mean it came off before impact. The fact that all blades came off would suggest that power was still being applied at impact....

You'd have to sustain negative G for a wee while to cause both engines to flame out.
