Glasgow Helicopter crash

I know we have quite a lot of members from Scotland (myself included)...

On Friday the 19th November a service helicopter operating for Police Scotland crashed into the Clutha Vaults pub close to Glasgow City Centre.

Thoughts go out to the people effected and their families.

My other half and young daughter landed in Glasgow a couple of days before, from Canada. You just can't plan for these outcomes and it's terribly unfortunate for the occupants of the coptor and indeed... for it to land in a packed pub playing live music.

I've not heard whether they've found out the cause of the crash yet, only that the blades weren't turning and it's been suggested it was out of fuel since there was no fire... though I've heard by design (thankfully) the fuel tanks are more hardended than the rest of the vehicle.

I am also from the West of Scotland. The Clutha Vaults is not such a large place and it was house full on Friday night. If you can imagine a small area like this jam packed with people I think we have to be thankful that it was not much worse.

I was there only last week. Not in the pub, but walked past it.

It's an awful incident, and as you say, BDW, i'm thankful it's not a great deal worse.

I went to see the area the night after it happened. Certainly not good. The death toll could have been so much higher (currently 9).

There is a lot of speculation as to what happened. Hopefully the investigation will provide concrete answers.

My next door neighbour's son plays keyboards in a band that was scheduled to play there on Sunday. He was quite shocked as they appear there regularly.
