A long read, but worth the time, possibly an answer to the modified S92 operated by DND, stress on the tail boom in the tight turn for landing. Only the Shadow Knows and the idiot that requested a fly by.

I have never once seen a military machine in any town ever that does not do a fly by. If they stop for fuel or stop for search and rescue they do one. In fact I was privy one time to listening to contract engineers for the 101 look at the flight data and wonder why a 101 with 2 pilots and nobody else pulled a 114 % something or other with just them on board?!? Its what they do without thinking that an engineer didnt factor in there would be a 500 hr Colonel in charge of this parade.
