Seeing visible light sources is where NVG's really perform.

Sorry Crab, I disagree.
Some 70% plus of accidents are caused by crew, CFIT even higher.
It is urgent to get this report out as it will also reveal a large amount of recommendations for this specific company and Irish SAR and IAA, I suspect.
I do feel for the Crew and the relatives, but that is no excuse for us to enter year 4 without a final report.

I wasn't suggesting they should be protected from criticism but their families would be considered stakeholders so naturally they would try to limit such criticism from the final report.

The" criticism" of the crew should be fair, based upon straight facts, and carefully consider the related factors and actions/in-actions of other persons, agencies, and authorities.

They are not to be the scapegoats in this tragedy.

Review board to examine R116 crash report

A review board has been established to examine the draft final report into a Coast Guard helicopter crash three years ago.The Minister for Transport Shane Ross has announced that certain findings made by the Air Accident Investigation Unit (AAIU) will be re-examined, at the request of one of the parties subject to the investigation.

The Review Board will be chaired by Senior Counsel Patrick McCann who will be assisted by an independent Expert Member. The Review Board will be entirely independent in its work in accordance with the relevant legislation.
