21-May-12 ZS-RSL AgustaWestland AW119 McCarthy’s Rest, South Africa

Unclear what happened.  Owner Frikkie Lutzkie decided to cut skids off “for ease of ground transportation”, cut blades off and remove the boom.  Helicopter was then smeared with mud and camouflaged with copious amounts of foliage.  Helicopter uninsured.  Date is approximate, but likely within a week of the correct date.  Read reports at the three links below for the full story
