Helicopter inquiry would be ‘fitting tribute’ to victims of 2009 crash

In 2009, all fourteen passengers and two crew died when a Super Puma came down in the North Sea close to Peterhead. Since then a further 17 families have lost loved ones who stepped aboard a Super Puma helicopter. So, it seems not only a rhetorical question but an insulting one to ask whether the lessons from ten years ago have been learned by the industry.
