15-Feb-14 PT-YMF Robinson R44 Villa Fatima, Brazil (2F)

Crashed into a forest area killing both on board.  There is some local controversy as the helicopter had reportedly been rebuilt after a fatal accident in 2007 and local law does not allow an aircraft which has been “written off” to be rebuilt in any way.  Some close-up photos at the accident scene of various parts here
