NH90 crashes into Bracciano Lake during an airshow June 2, 2008

Army based in Viterbo crashed on June 1, in the Bracciano Lake at 15.15L causing the death of Cap. Filippo Fornassi. The other 2 POB (People On Board) were rescued and survived the injuries. The aircraft was at the end of its display in the Ali sul Lago airshow in front of the Italian Air Force Museum, at Vigna di Valle airport. I was attending the show when I saw the helicopter performing a fiesler with an apex at low altitude: as soon as the aircraft’s nose was diving towards the lake, I understood that the pilot could not recover the chopper before touching the water. The aircraft touched the surface of water and broke up in many pieces before ditching. To watch an amateur video of the accident, take a look at the following Youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXtGsxxfNT4 I took the following pictures during the accident (images are copyrighted and have a watermark because they can’t be used for any purpose without prior permission).

So many countries have bought and still buying the NH90 helicopter which I believes it holds 20 troops. Very modern design should be used on naval vessels as well. I wondering if anybody in the forum flown in one? Are there helicopters guys here?

20 Troops. Wow. That is useful. Without being a full blown Chinook.
