The Australian ATSB prelim report is out about this R44 and its accident.

Looks like the alloy fuel tanks ruptured and the fuel ignited during the crash sequence, probably ignited by a switch near the tanks. Sad thing is there are SB's to replace the alloy tanks with bladder tanks before Dec 2013, apparently only 10% of VH registered R44's have been done.

Looks like this Helicopter was the one that crashed killing both occupants......

TWO men killed in a fiery helicopter crash during take-off from an airstrip on the NSW south coast were heading to nearby Jervis Bay to film a documentary.
David Bennett, president of the South Coast Recreational Flying Club, says he was standing just six metres from the helicopter when it crashed during take-off from the Jaspers Brush airfield, south of Berry, about 3.55pm (AEDT) on Saturday.
