Does this remind anyone of that video of the guy who throws the brick in the clothes dryer? Very similar.

And this is a Brazillian registered aircraft in Brazil; hence my comment about should have bought an import.

"Made In China"

It`s a AS350 BA by Helibras of Brazil, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eurocopter.

I guess those weren`t really "extra" parts after all.

It`s gone into Ground resonance. Every part of the aircraft starts to vibrate, this continues until it destroys itself as per the video. To stop this from happening the pilot should have lifted off again. So it`s down to the stick to seat interface.

The old saying goes: Any landing you can walk away from, is a good landing. But yeah, I`d have a chat with the maintenance guy...

The pilot then went off to have a little chat with the maintenance mechanic.
