Narrative:
A FLIGHT OF 2 HELICOPTERS PROCEEDED WITHOUT INCIDENT FROM CUMBERLAND TO THE VICINITY OF DUBLIN, OH WITHOUT INCIDENT. AFTER THEY CIRCLED THE AREA TO DETERMINE THE DIRECTION AND THE LOCATION OF OBSTACLES, THE FIRST HELICOPTER LANDED WITHOUT INCIDENT. THE PILOT OF THE FIRST AIRCRAFT RADIOED THAT THERE WAS A LITTLE LIGHT CHOP CLOSE TO THE GROUND, BUT NOTHING OF ANY SIGNIFICANCE. THE SECOND HELICOPTER APPROACHED TO LAND ON A SOUTH SOUTHWESTERLY HEADING. AT ABOUT 50 FT AGL AND 100 YARDS FROM THE LANDING AREA, IT PITCHED UP AND BANKED TO THE RIGHT. AS THE BANK TO THE RIGHT CONTINUED, THE NOSE DROPPED AND THE HELICOPTER STRUCK THE GROUND IN NEAR VERTICAL (NOSE DOWN) ATTITUDE. AN EXAMINATION OF THE AIRCRAFT, FLIGHT CONTROLS AND ENGINE REVEALED NO PREIMPACT DISCREPANCIES THAT WOULD HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE CRASH. CAUSE:
