Anyone know what happened here?

This is the unfortunate result of two helicopters attempting to mate. Normally, helicopters only mate in the wild. However if a female 500 is in heat and is kept in the hanger...well...the results are in the photo above. The male will do *anything* to reach the female, usually resulting in it's demise.

 

Very sad. In fact I'd say it's negligence on the operators part. They should have known how dangerous is it to keep a female 500 in captivity while she's in heat. :unsure:

I'm thinking they were running the machine too close to the door when somebody on the inside decided to open it.

 

Either that or they were too close to the door while track and balancing it and it somehow unexpectedly got light on the skids and drifted into oblivion.

Robinson also does blade destruction tests on a sample of blades coming off their production line. They simply choose to do them before mounting onto a helicopter.

 

I guess MD uses a different method.

Would suggest they were doing ground track, lifted to hover, Not a good idea with ground handling wheels that drop & lock, an the rest was history as they say !!! Note Chadwick Gun, & did you realise how far a head set cord can stretch.

There is another thread somewhere
