Helicopter accident

On Sunday, March 11, 2007, a McDonnell Douglas 369 helicopter crashed at Camp Naue. The helicopter, which was operated by Inter-Island Helicopters, was on a sightseeing flight around Kauai. The pilot lost control when the helicopter's tail rotor separated from the tail rotor gearbox and fell into the ocean. The pilot attempted to autorotate into the large field at Camp Naue, but clipped some trees during the descent. The crash left one passenger dead and three in critical condition. The descent and crash were witnessed by several people at the camp. No one on the ground was hurt, but there had been a child's birthday party at the crashsite shortly before the incident.
