    Looks to me, that this pilot was giving a show over a public area and lost control of his helicopter due to risky maneuvering. Underestimating the approach towards the lake and therefore could not pull up anymore; maybe even irresponsible behavior, if not for some technical reason.

    Lucky nothing more happened.

    Looks like a tail rotor transmission failure. Any information?

    Yeah that was posted here a while back.

    It looks like it was a loss of tail rotor thrust.

    In the Blackhawks if we ever lost tail rotor thrust the emergecy procedure was to stay above 80 knots (I could be wrong with the speed, I need to get my checklist out to verify) and do a roll on landing.
