Narrative:
During a test flight (to trouble shoot an engine problem), 18 minutes after take-off, the engine chip light came on and, shortly after this, the engine failed. The pilot carried out to an auto-rotation at the Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium; however, there was a match in progress, and he had to extend the landing to miss the players.

The helicopter subsequently touched down, severing the rear section of the tailboom, but otherwise suffering little other damage.
