A “FULL emergency” was declared at Aberdeen International Airport this afternoon after a caution light came on in the cockpit of a helicopter with eight people on board.
A total of 13 firefighters were called to the airport to deal with the incident, involving a Bristow helicopter carrying two crew members and six passengers.
A spokeswoman for Bristow said: “Bristow Helicopters can confirm one of its helicopters requested priority landing at Aberdeen International Airport today.
“A caution light falsely displayed causing the false alarm.
“Airport emergency services attended as per standard practice but no assistance was required.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “There was concern for a helicopter coming in to land but it landed safely with no incident at about 1.40pm.”
A Scottish Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said they were called out shortly after 1pm, and sent two appliances from North Anderson Drive and one from Dyce.
She said they had no details yet regarding the nature of the incident, but confirmed they had been called to a “full emergency”.
