Same thing happened to a Great Slave H500 at Pink Mountain, BC, a couple years ago: somebody overflew them right after shutdown and before the blades stopped.

 

Well, the blades stopped alright. But not before the t-boom got smacked at least five times

 

 

Huh, I guess thats the story of what really happened then. :down:
