Agusta A119, Mancos, Colo., June 30, 2005–The NTSB determined that the crash of the EMS A119 was caused by the loss of engine power for undetermined reasons and by the pilot’s inability to autorotate. A factor was the helicopter’s low altitude when power was lost. The A119 had arrived to pick up an injured logger. When it was about 220 feet above tree level, it “dropped straight down,” according to a fireman at the scene.
