The helicopter came into view again after about 30 seconds on a south-southeasterly course without visible heel and with the nose pointing downwardly at an angle of about 45 degrees. The flight direction was approximately straight in horizontal plan and about 45 degrees downward in the vertical plane.
Less than 10 seconds after the helicopter hit the sea with the front portion of the runners, the nose, and the main rotor, and the helicopter crashed.
The accident occurred in daylight.
