24-Mar-12 G-BXRR Westland Scout Northampton, UK

Pilot flared on final approach to hotel landing site but helicopter did not slow down as quickly as he expected so he increased the flare attitude, causing the tail to strike the ground. The helicopter started to yaw to the right, pilot lowered the collective, resulting in a heavy landing. The pilot and his passengers were uninjured and able to vacate normally.
