Helicopter crash in Vauxhall by suzulu on 17 January 2013 12:55am
 
A horrible thing to happen! 10 minutes walk from my office (not there this week though).

It is a bit of an eye-opener to think these machines whirl above us quite regularly, and one plummeted close to you. I'm glad you weren't nearby when it happened, Sue.

Thank goodness you were not there, Sue! I did think of you yesterday morning when the news first broke.

Strange but true... around 20 years ago I came up with a good idea to assist Helicopter Pilots helpe ascertain the critical distances between moving rotor tips and vertical solid objects. It works. I did not have the business accumen (still dont) to pursue this. I put forward my thoughts to pilots I knew, they thought it would be a great asset to crew, loadmasters and ground-crew... anyway, only 2 months ago I dug out my idea and sent a teaser email to Research and Development departments at 5 major Helicopter manufacturers.
No-One replied. Apathy is alive and well.!
