Narrative:
A gyrocopter crashed at RAF Mona, near Gwalchmai, Bodffordd, Anglesey (EGOQ). North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said that it was alerted to a gyrocopter crash at Mona Airfield at 12.15pm on Sunday.

A spokesman said they sent two crews from Holyhead. In the event, one was needed and even they were stood down. The Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust said that they were also at the scene. Apparently the pilot survived the crash, and the casualty was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

It is believed that the pilot had been about to take off when he got into difficulties, went off the runway, through a fence and finished up in a field. He is not believed to have left the ground. He is understood to be from the Conwy Valley.
