Is that just your view or have you a reference for that? Either way, the word 'anomaly' brings out all sorts of Twilight Zone theories. A weather/climate/atmospheric 'anomaly' would not cause the helio to lose power like somebody flicked a switch, on the other hand, some sort of EMP would.
I am going to stick my neck out here. Has anybody thought of looking into the pilot's history? All we know is he's ex-military and taught our Prince William to fly.
Glasgow Glasgow Helicopter Crash: 'No Engine Failure'
A helicopter that crashed into a bar in Glasgow, killing nine people, did not suffer an engine failure, investigators have said. An initial report from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) found that "all significant components were present" when the police aircraft came down on the Clutha bar last month. It also confirmed that while all rotor blades were attached at the time of impact, neither the main blades nor the tail blades were rotating. "Initial evidence indicated that the helicopter struck the flat roof of the single-storey building with a high rate of descent and low/negligible forward speed," the report said. It added: "Initial assessment provided no evidence of major mechanical disruption to either engine and indicated that the main rotor gearbox was capable of providing drive."
