Crash after an autorotation demonstration that did not go as planned (not verified).

This was not an autorotation. The Canadian Sea King was at an airshow and relocating to a different parking spot when the pilot misjudged his rate of descent during hot weather and the helicopter entered vortex ring state meaning he ran out of available power to arrest his descent and hit the ground.
