Looks like a Mil-8. Linkage to tail rotor is prone to flexing which leads to it breaking at u-joint near the tail. When this happens the tail often seperates and the forward section is driven into the fuel tanks and cause such explosions.

The chopper took part in an army airshow and was struck by the rotor of another chopper.
