EXTRACT: ' The helicopter came to a halt and started to hover as the AK-47s prepared to rake that stretch of trees into which Sofiya had disappeared. Suddenly Tamas stood up while all attention was focused on the trees, carefully aimed his shotgun at the almost stationary helicopter and pulled both triggers. He'd been really aiming at the pilot but at that limited range the effect of two shells was far greater. One smacked into the pilots head but the other smashed through the open window, through the roof and blew the rotary arm apart. There was a loud bang, a scream of terror and the machine plunged twenty metres towards the ground. Tamas had scarcely started to run away when the helicopter's impact produced an explosion which tore it apart and transformed the remnants into a mass of flame.'
