Engine failure is the initial focus in the crash of a Bell 206B Friday morning, shortly after takeoff from Coffs Harbour, on the east coast of Australia. The helicopter struck the ground with enough force to rip the rear rotor from the aircraft. The pilot and single passenger received only minor injuries. There was no post-crash fire.
