Narrative:
On Friday, 25 May 2018, the helicopter came out of control in connection with landing. It rotated twice before it ended up on the side, after the left skid had first hit the ground.

There were two people on board. The commander was uninjured while the passenger suffered minor cuts. The helicopter was substantially damaged. Examinations of the helicopter have not revealed technical findings that can explain the loss of control.
