Austrian Red Bull Air Race pilot Hannes Arch has died in a helicopter crash in the Austrian Alps - Grossglockner mountain area.

It’s still not clear what caused the crash. The helicopter has been scheduled for a night flight to Salzburg airport and the weather conditions were good. The helicopter collided into a sloping rock shortly after takeoff at around 9 pm on Thursday.

A second passenger who was seriously injured was taken to hospital in Lienz, Tirol.

It is very sad message and we send condolences to his family and friends.

Rest In Peace, Hannes.
