The aircraft was about to depart when it began to rotate to the left whilst still on the ground. It rotated through about five complete revolutions before the rotors struck the ground and the aircraft rolled onto its side. The removable left seat flying controls were found fitted and engineering evidence indicates that either one or both of the left yaw pedals had been applied at the time of the accident.
