A pilot has been rushed to hospital and another man was injured after a helicopter crash.
Two men were pulled from the training helicopter at Denham Aerodrome, Bucks., after it nose-dived shortly after 3pm yesterday.
Photos appear to show the helicopter upside down on grass with people rushing towards it.
An eyewitness said: “I live about 800 yards away.
“I literally got in from my front door sat and sat down at the table when I heard this loud boom.
“It was a massive boom.
“The pilot’s head was split and there was blood pouring all over his face.
“He was not in a good way.
“I’ve just been waiting for this to happen.”
A spokesman for South Central Ambulance Service said: “We received an emergency 999 call at 15:07 reporting a training helicopter having crashed at Denham Aerodrome.
“We sent an ambulance, a paramedic team leader in a rapid response vehicle, a Tactical Advisor and the Thames Valley Air Ambulance to the scene.
“There were two male patients in the helicopter – one had sustained minor injuries and the other serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
“The second patient was taken to Wexham Park Hospital by road after initial treatment at the scene; the patient with minor injuries was treated and discharged at the scene.”
A spokesman for Denham Aerodrome refused to comment.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
