Footage has emerged showing the moment a helicopter collided with a tourist plane over the Italian Alps, moments after take-off, killing seven.

Soccorso Alpino, the Italian Mountain rescue team, released the video of the mid-air collision that happened on January 25 near the Rutor glacier in the Aosta Valley, some 50 miles northwest of the city of Turin.

The footage, from two GoPro cameras, found at the crash site near the ski resort of La Thuile, shows the chilling final moments of the two aircraft in flight.
