O2 tag for above, Arsehole.

Sad loss, The more times i fly offshore the more concerned I get. It really is the worst part of my job

Agreed, wish there was an alternative that didnt take 18hrs with the added bonus of getting seasick.

Tragic accident, there never seams to be many survivors from offshore helicopter accidents.

worst bit of oil jobs, the helo out there
Depends on where you are, statistically.

Worst bit for me is looking into the cockpit and seeing people I recognise.

That's scary.

The pilots who flew us out to the rig werent old enough to drink, they were trainees. I enjoyed every minute of the flight there and back. Honestly. Was nearly as good as the plane ride up from moscow to Naryan Mar!

Theres talk on another thread, of Russia becoming a world superpower again, have to say I cant see it happening.
