Dreadfull news. There have been very recent issues with the S92. Mandatory inspections on the tail rotor input shaft and other issues. They werent grounded but not far off.
Thoughts to family and colleagues.lets hope they recover the crew and craft fast and gain an understanding of what exactly went so dreadfully wrong.

Shocking to hear even for someone not local and far from all those incidences.
Sad heroic tragedy

Just back from a very sad wreath laying ceremony to mark the 1st Anniversary of the tragic loss of R116.
The following article recently published by the Irish Times may be of interest to some.
