    w/o 04apr73 ditch near Glomar Oil Rig, North Sea
    suffered a hard landing on the drill ship Glomar north Sea, in which the rotors drooped down over the top of the cockpit, damaging the engine controls and circuit breaker panels. The pilot was unable to shut down the engines. Passengers and co-pilot were evacuated and the pilot lifted off the deck and landed on the sea. He was able to evacuate and swim away, leaving the aircraft burning and turning on the water for 2 hours until fuel ran out. The aircraft rolled over and sank. No loss of life, lots of loss of face. Shift engineer on duty at BHL at the time of the incident
