Puma Crash at Catterick - Condolences

Try asking in Aviation, considering they may well know the pilots. Assuming it's AAC, it's a damn small world.

Hopefully it's not serious.
Just seen it on the ITV news. It crashed near Catterick Garrison near the A1. As of yet it is unknown whether it is a military craft or a civillian one and rescue work is underway.
Thats all the info it gave.
Its still on the ticker tape at news.bbc.co.uk.

All it says is that the MOD are investigating a reported helicopter crash in North Yorkshire...more soon
