A ******* Super Puma eh, we got a notification last week saying they were bringing them back into service. To prove how confident they were with them they were doing a courtesy flight, or some shite, by a senior pilot to an installation somewhere and he would answer any questions and reassure the workforce etc how the Super Puma was awesome etc etc
I guess this will hopefully be the end of the Super Puma in the North Sea. The tight cnuts should replace them with S92s.
