AAIB Helicopter reports - UK
 
For the following 2 x helicopter reports in the UK, how would each incident/accident be summed up by all the AAIB reports in 1 simple paragraph? For example, if someone asked me down the pub, how would I answer them in simple clear terms (what happened, who was to blame, what went wrong):
1) Cessna 152, G-WACG & Guimbal Cabri G2, G-JAMM - High Wycombe.
2) Agusta AW169, G-VSKP - Leicester.

Why not read the reports yourself? :confused:

The AAIB don't allocate blame - it's not their responsibility to do so.

There isnít a report published yet on the AW169 accident - just two special bulletins. As ST says, there isnít blame apportioned.

Blame? That’s a bit old testament.

simple clear terms (what happened
Short, concise version; 1) Mid-air collision 2) Loss of tail rotor control (not pilot error - the control rod between pedals and TR failed).

A very cynical response MD600 and not supported by any dealings I have ever had with them.

I very much second what Crab says. In my experience AAIB are first rate, caring, conscientious professionals who take their role and their remit extremely seriously. Not to mention doing a difficult and often unpleasant job.

One has to question the origin and motivation behind such a bitter comment.

Absolute tosh! They are one of the most professional and highly respected investigation agencies in the world. I personally know some of them an you could not find more conscientious and expert people anywhere.

I very much agree with the more positive posts above, from #7 onwards.

Utter tosh. Often in aviation accidents the truth is very unpalatable, but it doen't stop it being the truth.

And ain't that the truth of the matter.
