Good luck boys and girls, hope all are O.K.
With any luck it's good weather and daylight allowing a very high prospect of 100% recovery of all passengers safely.

Apparently a Bond flight, 16 souls on board, a supply vessel is first to arrive on site.

Good luck to all involved

The lack of news is a 'telling tale' Up to 20 onboard (according to BBC) Initial report 16 POB.

This is a very tragic day I'm afraid....

BBC claims Bond have confirmed it IS one of theirs. 30miles NE of Peterhead. No Mayday calls. Fast rescue from Supply Vessel nearby was first on scene. And now 2 RAF Heli and a Nimrod is on scene.

30 miles NE they will probably have been on Radar already, which will help expeditiously pinpoint their location. Best of luck to the crew!!

Incident is reported to have happened at approx 14:00

Looking at Bond's "live flight centre" they had a departure, 82Y, to the Paul B. Lloyd Jr at 13:59, and a flight 85N due back from the Miller, ETA in ABZ 14:15.
The Miller flight status is "not arrived"

Not jumping to conclusions here, just stating what's listed!

Again, my wishes for a speedy & full recovery.

85N IS the one from the Miller.

But we should remember it could be late back for any number of reasons, & not jump to conclusions it's this flight which has suffered an incident.

Although, if it IS confirmed to be a Bond flight, it seems most likely to be this one.
