Narrative:
An Airbus H125 (AS 350B3e) crashed in Skoddevarre, near Alta, Finnmark. The helicopter company Helitrans A/S flew local sightseeing flights during the "Høstsprell" local music festival. The helicopter was destroyed. There was a post-impact fire. All six on board the helicopter reported perished. 5 occupants were from Alta. A precatuionary AD was issued but further location of debris appears to have reduced suspicion on a mechanical cause.
