      Tail rotor gear box failure? The tail rotor seems to be moving slow. The best part of this is the pilot doesn't have to pay for the repairs. Just the NY Fire Dept or their insurer.

Lowerng the collective and trying to gain speed was the right move unfortunately there wasn't enough altitude to gain speed for a potential run on landing.
