Photo 04 - The tree damaged the fuselage skin. The technician who had preferred to fall asleep just after taking off, was thrown on a floor when the copter hit the ground - and so much shocked, seeing the tree through the crack in the fuselage!
Photo 05 - Another tree punched the Hook's auxiliary wing. Here we can also see the troubleshooting unit - according to ground crew's reminiscence, there was a big crack in the gearbox's upper lid, about an inch-wide. The destruction of satellite cogs caused the displacement of the bell-cog and the whole rotor axis.
