Notes:

As the helo hit the surface of the lake I took a sequence of 4 pictures (this one being the first). The NH90 broke up in myriad pieces and ditched causing the death of Capt. Filippo Fornassi. Miraculously 2 other POB and people on the paddle boat survived. When I uploaded the full sequence to my blog some 25.000 visitors watched the dramatic pictures in a few hours but I couldn't be happy....

Sad view but a great shot. R.I.P captain.

Look at those people on the boat, they watched the action right in front of their eyes, but at the same time they were so lucky.. Unique catch. Gz, David.

Really rare and professional shot...Sorry for the pilot.
