Summary

The aircraft was engaged in a shooting operation at the time of the accident. Whilst in a shallow descent about 180 feet above scrubby trees, the pilot applied power to fly away. The engine failed to respond and the main rotor RPM reduced. The pilot was forced to land the helicopter amongst the trees. It was reported that the power reduction may have been caused by a faulty fuel control unit.
