Narrative:C-FZTA was substantially damaged 6 October 1998 when crashed in a "hard forced landing" near Ouarzazate, Ouarzazate Province in the Souss-Massa-Drâa, Morocco. While conducting a survey flight, the Aerospatiale AS 350 B-2 pilot heard a grinding noise and moments later observed a chip light accompanied with a high oil pressure reading. The sling load was dropped and, while attempting to auto-rotate the helicopter onto a highway, the aircraft landed hard.
