Post by Dusty Muzzle »

Anyone know anything of the 76 that went ploughing in a field near Dublin.
Heard a few rumours, anyone know the facts:?:

OK OK I'll bite. Let's see if we can get something going, if not it's back to whinging Ozzie Robbo drivers on Prune!
Feb 04, S76, N reg, private owner, new in country, 2 crew, a "young Irish guy" + an other (thankfully unhurt), running landing in field (Dublin area), gear damaged, tail bent.
Heard a few theories inc. gear problem and now eng chip light mentioned, though can't see why either would neccessitate a forced landing.
It's got to be the only 76 here so strange that no one knows...or is talking!

You wouldn't be confusing that with a similar event to a similar a/c in Liverpool around a similar time? :P

Maybe nose up on final, needs more power, addition of such below ETL, not a good idea.......................................................................... :lol:

Interesting, the plot thickens! Initial story was that it was picked up from Liverpool docks but stoofed over here on its ferry trip back. Heard no mention of a Liverpool incident, but there's your connection, rumours, don't you just love 'em?!

Who is this "young Irish guy" and what is he doing flying an S76, isn't that a multi crew aircraft for old hands?
And much more importantly how is the helicopter now?

Seems as if everyone shares the view of Victor 9, a shame.
If the " less said the better" mentality prevails not only is it the assumption that those involved were up to no good, but perhaps more importantly, nobody learns from what happened.
I thought Irish helicopter aviation was trying to move away from the 'Midnight Cowboy' reputation?!
I'm off. Bye.

Ah the poor fella,

Its one thing forgetting to turn on your lights at night and barging into airspace unanounced, but its when you start damaging such a nice piece of machinery, you have really crossed the line, who was the copilot and what were his qualifications?
Get the feeling all the good contacts in the world (or IAA), won't be able to save his hide this time round. :roll:

The 76 is a SPIFR machine, in the right hands..........................
Was informed that the left seat was occupied by a passenger and not really a crew member!
Again rumours but tis what we thrive on. :lol:
