A very sad day

It has been a beautiful day here in Aberdeen but once again a very dark and sombre mood hangs over the city and another tragedy in the oil industry.....not nearly on the scale of the "Piper Alpha" disaster but none the less the tragic loss of 16 lives aboard a Bond Helicopter from BP Miller....only last month a helicopter ditched in the North Sea and thankfully all personnel were recovered safe and well.....tragically not this time.  We, like many folk in Aberdeen...have friends who regularly travel to work offshore by helicopter and thankfully they were not aboard this flight.    My heart goes out to the families..loved ones and friends of these brave men...and I pray that the bodies of those still missing will be recovered quickly.
