3 went down in the ship. Near San Onefre, all 3 are ok (minor injury). Ship landed in the surf..total loss.

 

Definitely a Border Patrol ship.

Coincidentally, Rotor&Wing interviewed Lynn Tilton in the February issue and they asked her about the 600 and the future of the design. Tilton: "The future is to fix what ails it. It came to market way too quickly. It is loved by great pilots, but it is not an easy aircraft to fly. We are working on fixing the controls and hydraulic issue."

 

On a related note there is an AD for stuck vertical stabilizers (not inferring that has anything to do with this incident) on the 520s and 600s, that requires them to fly with the yaw stabilization augmentation system turned off.

And that my dear friend causes them to fly at reduced airspeeds as well....It was pretty sad to see a nice ship bobbing in the surf with the tail section broke off. It looked just like the R22 acccident the day before, very eerie to have two ships down so close.

 

JD- yepp, right next to the power plant and close to the border checkpoint....which is not close to any border....figure that out !
