Very tragic and sad news.... Heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and co- workers of the fallen. Somehow comments of a monetary consequence regarding the aircraft seems very inappropriate .

I'm curious why we are hearing blade fracture down here in the States and nothing up here on the Canada board, AirEvac lost a crew a few years ago and a little bird is telling me there was a run of blades made by a vendor for Bell that was suspect, coincidence? More to come.

Very sad, I spent a few years flying that area years ago and enjoyed if very much.

RIP fellow flyers.

Life can be short

this is an open forum, and this thread is not a monument. The blade connection is a valid link between the initial post identifying the crash and where it has lead to now to a pretty substantial cost prohibitive airwortiness issue.

 

If you want to make a post honoring the dead, go to the appropriate subforum and do so.
