You can usually smell them and I've known a few get pulled at the heliport, I've also known a few get through.
One lad turned up and slept it off for the first day the second had to be carried back to the chopper and strapped in.

It's strange how a Canadian chopper goes down and everyone is full of sympathy - we lose 16 people from our own country and nobody seems very interested..................

RIP to those poor people!!!

its a rather sad thing to say but that is the attitude of society today, some people are of the opinion that if its not them or any any person close to them they don't care , i see this every shift i work one way or the other. (and its getting worse)it makes me sick .
may they rest in peace

Depends where you live. Wher I am it sometimes floods, everyone muscles in helps people sort houses out secure boats etc.

I know it shouldn't make any difference but thats 3 crashes in a couple of months and people maybe think its the norm?

I still find it hard to believe that lads I worked with are dead and you'll never see them again. What makes it harder is it was Christmas when the CHC one went down off Blackpool and the lads had just worked Christmas. I honestly can't imagine how the families felt having a pile of presents that were never going to get opened by the person for whom they were intended.

It also said Bond had grounded its fleet of super puma choppers yet two of them are part of BP's Jigsaw SAR programme and they were still flying.

Its all politics and money to keep people happy. At the end of the day BP will have a contract with Bond and unless Bond go bust where are Scotia or Bristows going to find a load of new choppers to supply BP flights?
