widgeon Posted May 18, 2004 Report Share Posted May 18, 2004 RCMP helicopter removed from N.B. sandbar after emergency landing TABUSINTAC, N.B. (CP) - An RCMP helicopter forced to make an emergency landing on a sandbar off northeastern New Brunswick, was removed by barge on Monday. It could be a week before investigators know what caused the aircraft to shake violently just before the pilot set it down late Saturday. Three officers aboard were not injured. The helicopter was brought ashore and will be checked over for damage and the source of the mechanical failure. The chopper went into service just last fall, replacing one that had been in use for 25 years. It's still under warranty. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
