He came down too fast and hard which caused the tail rotor boom to fail and the rest just followed.

The transition for backwards to forwards flight requires a huge amount of power - looking at the coning angle on the blades he was already close to the limit anyways - He then ended up (by the look of things) in a vortex ring state - settling with power - at that height there isn't really much you can do to get out of it ....

We teach / demo this, but at height as you can loose 2-3000' in the demo for a reasonably well developed vortex ring ...

Not nice ...
