Gistmania gathered that the helicopter was already in descent when the pilot lost control causing it to crash land. The chopper, a gunship apparently carried ammunition as the crash sent off sparks and explosions. Men of the fire service responded promptly and were already on the scene at the time of filing the report, battling to subdue the fire.
