Helos grounded

News tonight that similare helos to the one that crashed in Glasgow have been grounded. The cause is a possible fuel gauge problem. Makes sense as there was no fire when the helo crashed and could be because it ran out of fuel.

You are well behind the curve (the operator had been flying again for some hours before you posted, and the type was never "grounded" by the manufacturer), and are wildly speculating about the cause of the accident.

Daft post.
