15-Oct-13 PR-EKN Eurocopter EC145 Itapipoca, Brazil

The aircraft was about to land in a soccer pitch. The pilot suffered a momentary spatial disorientation due to the dust raised by the helicopter main rotor wash. In face of the unexpected difficulty, the pilot proceeded to land with an excessive pitch-up attitude, causing the tail rotor protective rod and the left lower vertical fin to hit the ground, resulting in light damage to the aircraft.
