30-Jul-20 N160LA Sikorsky S70A Santa Clarita, US-California

Blade strike while training in mountainous area. Helicopter continued take-off and departed location with rotor blade noise clearly “non-standard”

Analysis of the helicopter’s tracks have suggested the date was 26-Jul-20 but this is not confirmed.  Having been very active daily for two straight weeks, it was then not flying for four days.  The video was posted on Facebook on 03-Aug-20
