LEICESTER (ENGLAND) – The crash of the helicopter, which cost the life of the president of Leicester and four other people, was caused by the tail engine control system, which was deactivated due to a loose screw. This is the conclusion reached by the Air Incident Investigation Board (Aaib), the investigative structure that is investigating the incident of last October 27th.
According to experts, the helicopter took off from the Leicester camp, and on which President Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was returning to London, lost stability because the tail rotor control system, which is the tool that pushes the aircraft in the opposite direction to that generated from the main rotor, it ended up out of control.
This explains why the helicopter – as already revealed by the black box – has undergone a sudden swing to the right, once taken off, in the opposite direction from the pilot's controls.
