28-Jun-12 TU-THO Eurocopter SA365C2 Beposo, Ghana

Helicopter carrying six employees of mining company Newmont and two crew of the IAS Helicopter Company this afternoon made an unscheduled landing at Beposo in the Ashanti Region. All people on board the aircraft are safe.  Damage level is not known – company announcement implies a safe single engine landing.  Some press reports contain a photo of a military Puma on its side, but the quoted registration and type do tie up to one in West Africa.  Another report shows a South African Bo105!
