22-Jan-14 A6-DYR Eurocopter EC130 Dubai, UAE

The helicopter impacted the helipad surface shortly after lift-off. It was airborne for less  than a minute and had climbed to approx. 20 meters. After impact, the helicopter continued to spin counter clockwise about its landing gears, on the tarmac for approximately 149 meters destroying the surrounding trees/markers before coming to rest at the end of the tarmac. Even though the cabin was intact, the impact and contact with the surrounding objects caused the tail rotor and cabin door to separate, severe damage to the tail boom,  main rotor blades and other parts of the helicopter.  Both people injured, one serious one critical, in crash close to Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai
