  2. Gillingham: Four Killed In Helicopter Crash



    Is Paddy O'Terr back?

    Fog makes flying less safe.

    Helicopters are handy for that.

    That's it; the Beccles Triangle. There be dragons.

    Anyway, there but for the grace etc. Flying machines sadly crash; well the affordable ones do.

  4. Who's betting the weather is a major factor. Won't be long before we hear pilots instrument rating not up to the weather conditions I reckon. Then watch the media pounce!
     
  5. Corporate pressure to fly, and weather conditions I fear Waspie.

  6. It'll all come out in the wash, the McCrae crash is a prime example. He wasn't current of aircraft type, licence had expired if I recall.
