07-Dec-15 N607BP MD Helicopters MD600N Angleton, US-Texas

During the approach, the helicopter pitched forward, and the pilot moved the cyclic aft to compensate for the forward pitch. Shortly thereafter, the helicopter rolled to the right and entered a spin to the right. The pilot then attempted to land the helicopter, but it impacted terrain and rolled onto its left side. Pilot Ed Faris was transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening. The passenger, 34-year-old Terry Claessen, was treated at the scene.
