At approximately 11:10 hrs, the pilot carried out an approach to land at the HKAC at Kai Tak, he encountered difficulties in stabilising the helicopter and performed a go around. After an uneventful go around, the pilot made a second approach but eventually decided to perform another go around due to difficulties in stabilising the helicopter.
As he was making a turn to the right, the helicopter started a spin in a clockwise direction. Whilst the helicopter was spinning, it began to lose altitude and drifted in a northerly direction until it impacted the windscreen of a coach parked in the parking lot adjacent to Sung Wong Toi Road. At the time of the accident, one person was working inside the coach. There was no post-impact fire but the aircraft was damaged. The pilot, the helicopter passenger and the person inside the coach sustained minor injuries.
