good one 407. here''s what a buddy passed on.......


I just came back from the Vancouver office today and saw some pictures


the crash from Baku. Aircraft burned and is a right off. Nobody hurt.

Happened during auto training, the local national pilot stood the S-76


her tail to the point where the tail hit first and came down so hard

that it

broke off the gear and skidded on the runway. This ripped out the fuel


and started the aircraft burning.
