Has one died then??

 

:P

I realise I have made a major cock-up in this post, not only are the options wrong,I have come to realise that I don't care how long the post discussing it runs.

 

Not sure why I posted really!

If I was to be speculative I would say so. Listening to the many news reports and others' comments I would say as there was a bang noise, gearbox or summat.

 

However, I'm not being speculative so I won't speculate.

Photos apparently show one of the tail rotor blades undamaged and still joined on to the hub, which suggests the tail rotor was not spinning on impact with the ground. How this could have happened is deeply perplexing.

Tail rotor  drive shaft, or tail rotor bevel box ? .

I don't really understand the question.

 

I said the tail rotor blades appear not to have been rotating on impact. You can speculate for yourself why not, or where in the drive train the failure occurred, if there was a failure. Shutting down the engines would stop the tail rotor too, would it not?

Looking at the video of it coming down I don't think the pilot would have had much chance of doing anything including shutting the engine down.

 

Nick would be the best person to comment but it looks to me like the centrifugal forces created as it started to spin would have been immense.

It's even worse on Mrs Bob's new sewing machine thing when trying to work out the thread to use. Its got a right thread, a left thread and a centre thread. You have to concentrate.

Wot another new machine, you spoil her. I wish this thread had a reversing knob, say 12 hours.

If we put our heads together and asked Bizz, maybe he could build you a time machine?

It was not really a question, more a musing as to what /if a failure occurred ;a stationary tail rotor is usually one or more failures of the components in question.
