The Chinook was flying in concert with two CH146 Griffons in VMC (Visual Meteorological Conditions). Very shortly after touch down, the Flight Engineer (FE) called for the pilot to abort the landing. The pilot flying (PF) aborted the landing and started to climb the aircraft into a hover. The aircraft entered into an unstable flight regime shortly after with strong lateral oscillations causing the PF to initiate an emergency landing. Upon touch down, the FE called for an emergency egress whilst the PF initiated an emergency shutdown of the aircraft. Two of the front rotor blades made contact with the fuselage and the rear landing gear collapsed.
