One of Donald Trump’s private helicopters was involved in an accident in New York while coming in to land.
The Sikorsky S-76B helicopter clipped a perimeter fence at the West Side Heliport, along the Hudson River, last month.

The impact was enough to rip the rotor blades off and leave the aircraft grounded, though nobody was injured.

Images given to Page Six show the helicopter had to be winched free, though only after paper had been taped over Trump’s name to obscure it.

 Witness told the paper that the accident was the result of a bad landing.

The FAA confirmed an investigation, but said all questions should be directed to the White House, which didn’t comment.

The Trump Organization also failed to comment when asked by Page Six.

It is not known who was on board the aircraft at the time, though it is often used by family members of Mr Trump.
The billionaire is not allowed to fly in the helicopter himself, and instead must use either Air Force One or Marine One.
