Accident Summary:

Aircraft completed mission for the day after flying almost 8 hours. The aircraft commander refueled the aircraft at the POL dispensing point located near the 71st AHC flight line. Upon completeion of the refueling operation, WO Waterbury hovered the aircraft along the taxiway and landed in an open area to facilitate unloading the equipment on the aircraft. During the unloading, PFC Sylvester noticed fuel coming from the underside of the aircraft and relayed the information to WO Waterbury. WO Waterbury notified maintenance personnel by radio and was advised to move the aircraft to the maintenance revetment at the extreme end of the flight line. WO Waterbury landed at the revetment where he was asked by the platoon sergeant, after exiting the aircraft, to move the aircraft to the defueling point. SGT Boyer acted as ground guide and signaled the aircraft to hover to the right, away from the obstacles. After the aircraft gained what was considered sufficient clearance, SGT Boyer signaled the aircraft commander to accomplish a 90 deg turn to the right. WO Waterbury initiated the turn after receiving clearance from the crew engineer, SP4 Kotecki. During the turn, the aircraft tail rotor struck a conex containers causing the tail rotor and 90 deg gear box to separate from the tail boom pylon. WO Waterbury executed a hovering autorotation. The aircraft landed hard after a 90 deg turn to the right following the contact with the conex container. There were no injuries.
