Two offshore-employed 76's down .. a week apart.

Any word on the operator yet?

Mutt, I think Savoia was referring to this "other one" - http://www.pprune.org/rotorheads/529...-fourchon.html

Limited number of possible operators. Either MHS or Awan Inspirasi I assume.

ah ok, I wasnt thinking of that one as an offshore helicopter down. I guess it was but it wasnt offshore at the time.

Flying the S76 offshore, I just wondered which ones were meant. I didnt know of any other operators in Malaysia using the 76.

Helimutt: I noted "offshore-employed" ie. related to offshore flying.

Just 'glad' that most of the accidents this month have been non-fatal, many even without injury.

Jeremy, do you know who currently operate 76's in Malaysia. CHC, MHS .. ?

I think that it may be one of the aircraft owned by Bristow on lease to MHS?

The incident occurred when the helicopter was about to make a controlled landing aboard a vessel carrying out seismic work," it said, adding that the cause of the incident was still under investigation.

Hmm, short final to the deck it goes into the water. Floats don't inflate (?)and it sinks, but 2 pilots and 6 pass all get out ok. No mention of any mechanical problem (so far). If it was Nigeria we'd all be suspecting that dreaded downburst. Weather change..wind shift to a tailwind?
