Helicopter Makes Hard Landing Near Springfield TN
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE (Smokey Barn News) – According to the Robertson County Emergency Management Agency, a helicopter has made a hard landing just outside Springfield Tennessee. No injuries have been reported. There were two onboard.
The small craft went down in a field off Black Rd about three miles from the Robertson County Airport which we believe is the craft’s origin. The craft went down around noon. MAP
On touchdown, the tail rotor section of the craft broke off and there appears to be damage to the main rotor assembly. We believe the damage to the craft took place on the ground and not in flight but we are still waiting for an official statement. As soon as we have more information we will bring it to you but as we indicated, no one on board the craft or on the ground was injured.
If you are in the area drive with caution and watch for emergency vehicles on the road.
