Mors tua, vita mea
Short Bussed

Both of the crew lived (amazingly) and noone on the ground died either.

After the low speed pass his cyclic climb looked... off. I wonder if he just didn't get as much altitude as he thought he would before doing the 180 and just ran out of it.
 
Amazing footage, I used to work at Royal Naval Air Station, Yeovilton. Hangar 13 is where they laid out accident debris/wreckage for the investigation team. I recall a Sea King Helicopter in there, it ditched into the sea because a little pin sheared that connected the joystick to the control of the rotors. These sorts of incidents are usually down to some sort of mechanical failure I suppose.

Great post, thanks Blunda.
