Report: North Sea Helicopter Experiences 'Technical Fault'
A CHC helicopter left significant gouge marks on the deck of a North Sea platform on December 28, according to a report from the BBC published late Thursday.
The helicopter was said to have been landing on the West Franklin platform when it developed what has been described as a technical fault.
Those on board the helicopter during the incident, which included two crew and nine passengers, were uninjured, the BBC reported.
"We can confirm that one of S92s operating from Aberdeen experienced unexpected control responses during the final stages of a landing at an offshore platform,” the BBC quoted a CHC spokesperson as saying.
"We are in close contact with the aircraft manufacturer and we will be keeping customers and fellow operators informed of any significant factual information as it emerges,” the spokesperson added.
