The Transportation Safety Board of Canada says the main rotor blades of the Cougar helicopter that crashed March 12 killing 17 of the 18 people on board were still working on impact. The inflation collar failed to inflate when it hit the water. The Board reported today that their examination of the main gear box indicated no loss of main rotor drive, although the tail rotor gears had been severely damaged, causing the chopper to lose thrust.
