Reply to "NTSB to release Prem report on Air Evac crash"

ROTORWASH, I'M NOT FOLLOWING YOU ABOUT THE ROTOR STRIKING THE TAIL BOOM. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE UNLESS THERE HAS ALREADY BEEN A STRUCTURAL FAILURE? CAN THE ROTOR PHYSICALLY TOUCH THE BOOM WITHOUT SOMETHING HAVING ALREADY CHANGED POSITIONS STRUCTURALLY? I'M NOT DISAGREEING JUST TRYING TO UNDERSTAND. ON A FIXED WING PLANE THE PROP CAN NEVER TOUCH THE FUSELAGE UNLESS SOMETHING HAS ALREADY BROKEN OR BENT. COMMON SENSE TELLS ME THE SAME ENGINEERING WOULD GO INTO A ROTOR CRAFT.
