I remember we were talking about dynamic rollover a few months ago, and that nobody could locate an example of the effect. Well, I came across a video today (thanks Ned), and thought I'd share it just in case anyone was still looking for one.

Ouch. Certainly does happen quickly, and the guy standing on the ladder was VERY lucky he didn't get minced.

Actually, the pilot suffered Ground Resonance first from the landingbounce. Watch the rotors wander out of plane. Pilot starts to lift off when the vibration is felt, but is too late.
Then, the rollover occurs.
Either way, makes you wonder how a pilot flying such a beautiful machine, who makes such a calm approach, messes up at touchdown.

The most amazing thing is that it did not hit any other aircraft.

Seemed to be smoke but no flames, does the AS350 have a fire suppression system and hence the cloud of either smoke or powder??

Incredable response time from the emergency response teams...unless the video has been edited.....they were on the job before the dust had settled!

That was horrible.
As WG says it happened SO quickly.. Would I be right in thinking that the pilot didn't park the lever right down and left it light on the skids? It seemed to float or rotate a bit on the ground but yes you could see the cyclic must have been displaced after the ground bounce (pilot distraction?) because you usually 'feel' if the cyclic is not central when landing. The disc was quite forward and to the pilot's left.

Hope he and any crew were ok.
