    It's believed the Iroquois helicopter was one of three heading to Anzac Day services in Wellington

    Four crew members have died after their Royal New Zealand Air Force helicopter crashed into a hill near Wellington this morning.

    Three were killed in the crash and a fourth died in hospital.

    Authorities are now trying to work out exactly how the helicopter crashed.

    The Iriquois helicopter was one of three on its way from the Ohakea air base to Wellington to take part in fly overs as part of Anzac Day services.

    The crash happened just before 6:30am.

    The helicopter was flying in heavy fog and crashed into the Paekakariki hill, 40 kilometres north of the capital.

    Pictures show the helicopter upside down and in a number of pieces on the hillside.

    Officials from the Royal New Zealand Air Force are at the scene and will hold a press conference later today.

    Details about who was on board have not been released.
