Helicopter crashes at Fiji resort, seven on board safely escape with only minor injuries - video

Submitted
 
Watch a superb video capturing the helicopter's windy approach and stable landing. For a brief second, the skids touch down on the pad, but within an instant, a gust of wind catches the tail and lifts the whole machine violently up and forwards into trees where it crashes and finally comes to rest, a complete wreck. Local hotel staff and holidaymakers quickly rescue the pilot and passengers from the mangled airframe. (www.stuff.co.nz) More...

Quite clearly a downwind landing in challenging winds. Convenience should have been replaced by a better choice of landing site.
