The actual report.http://www.taic.org.nz/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=ou0cF1c2Lw8%3d&tabid=36&mid=613&language=en-US That monsoon bucket looks fundamentally flawed. No mention of the hook VNE speeds for the As350. Interesting for an AS350 crash they mention the Lama often.

TL:DR -- going to fast, bucket cables hit tail rotor
