Summary

Summary

The helicopter flew through a flock of birds. The pilot felt and saw a number of birds strike the main rotor and also saw bird remains travel rearwards after this main rotor contact. After a short time of further flight with no apparent problems, the pilot heard a "bang" from the rear of the aircraft. He saw that the rear of the aircraft was vibrating so elected to land immediately. During the landing, the tail rotor contacted the ground.
