Narrative:
The helicopter was approaching to land at the SK Batu Melintang football field for a passenger pick-up. Because the pilot was facing direct into the sun, he intended to turn 180 degrees. However, the helicopter drifted suddenly to the left due to gusting wind. As a result, the tail rotor and tail rotor assembly broke off. The pilot managed to land safely without any other incident.
