Some years ago, on a foreign tour, we used to fly around all summer with the sky bright red or brown from dust thrown up by heavy vehicles, sometimes to the point of IMC. There was never an engine failure in the three years I was there.

It's about time this overcautious nonsense about the safety of helicopters in a tiny bit of fallout over London was stopped and we all went back to work.
