Helicopter Makes Hard Landing At Tulsa International After Losing Tail Rotor

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

SkyNews6 took flight Wednesday afternoon after we got word of a chopper down at Tulsa International Airport.

When we flew over, we spotted this helicopter.

Our pilot, Will Kavanagh, said it appeared the helicopter was missing its tail rotor.

There was no other obvious damage, but he could see skid marks on the concrete where the chopper spun around to a stop.

Will talked to the control tower, who told him the helicopter was in flight when the tail rotor came off.

People on the ground found the tail rotor in a parking lot nearby.

The helicopter was owned by Crumpton Aviation. The owner of the company said no one was injured and credited the pilot for being able to maneuver the aircraft to the ground, while avoiding any further damage or injuries.
