A cr*p time for the offshore industry just got worse.

My thoughts are with those directly affected.

Oh no.

RIP to the dead.

This really could not have picked a worse time to happen to the offshore helicopter industry and to Bristow.

Peter Bello was one of the kindest and most good hearted persons I've ever met. Words fall short of expressing my sorrow when I read the news that we've lost him...

I have know Jay since our time at HAI in the early 2000's. I am deeply saddened to hear of this tragedy. My deepest condolences to his family and all the others that lost their loved ones...

Bristow Helicopter crashes in Lagos

On August 12, 2015, in Lagos Nigeria, the helicopter community lost two remarkable pilots. Jay Wyatt and Peter Bello. The impressive outpouring of unity and support that has followed their departure is a testament to their unique but shared character; and a reminder that their memories will forever live on in our hearts.

this business of flying in IMC condition on a VFR flight plan must stop immediately. There is no way that this would fly in any other part of the world
Did in Australia.

The human face. RIP
