Sky Sports News are reporting live that after their match that just finished, a helicopter understood to be that of the club's owner crashed on take off.

They're showing a raging inferno a few hundred metres from the ground.
 
Tight cnut couldn't be bothered to even maintain his own helo properly.

This looks really nasty. Unsurvivable for anyone aboard, lets hope no one else was affected.

Latest from Sky. Owner was NOT on board.
 
I'm impressed that the AAAIB - ARRSERATTI Air Accident Investigation Bullshitters have started speculation into the causes already.
Other than line blockage/breach or pump failure what do you think causes a stall that soon after takeoff?

Amateur eye witnesses are suggesting tail rotor failure.

Another sensible thread started but with knobends making desperately unfunny comments.
 
It's a helicopter. They only fly because earth rejects the heathen objects.

More seriously, tail rotor failure is one of the main unrecoverable problems in any helicopter.
RIP to the pilot(s)

Where is the mention of a stall? Maybe we should get you on the missing Malaysian 777, you'd tell us what happened and where it is.
 
Eyewitness report BBC:

"One witness said it appeared "the tail propeller wasn't working, putting it into a spin"

They are now saying he was on board, with "family and friends".
BBC News, Sky News and Telegraph websites all fail to comment on who was aboard.

This was from the Sky Sports News guy at the stadium.

He did say "unconfirmed reports" though.
