25-Mar-11 N4033P Hiller UH-12E Elkwood, US-Virginia

The helicopter came to rest tilted on its left side. One of the main rotor blades was nearly snapped off, and the impact completely sheared off the rear tail rotor, which came to rest a short distance from the main body.  Had completed 20 minutes flying time since maintenance, and was the pilot’s first flight in 2011
