        The TV news is saying they were an hour into the flight, I take it this means they were conducting a survey at the time ? You can drive between Cumbernauld and the crash site in less than an hour ?

        The flight was described as a routine flight between Cumbernauld and Aberdeen...

          Christ, sort of strikes a chord, I was there at 09.20 today when she departed.

            Very sad news. My condolences to all who knew the crew. I caught a snatch of the news on the readio in the car, the other half actually turned the radio up when it came on. I couldn't believe it, after 25 years of turning down news reports of anything aviation related, she has at long last got the idea that I'm interested and want to hear it.
            The mind once expanded by a new idea never returns to its original size.

              Sad news. G-WLLY was a regular at Heli-days and probably the crew too. RIP gentlemen

                I believe they were carrying out a pipeline survey, which are carried out on a very regular basis. In the 'old' days the crews used to stop off at Longside for a coffee, chat and some fuel. I used to in awe of these guys - one hell of a job thats for sure.

                Sadly found out tonight that the pilot was an ex-colleague of my father's from many moons ago. A superb bloke according to the 'war' stories I've heard tonight.

                RIP gentleman.
