The mother of an oil worker killed in a North Sea helicopter crash said safety bosses would be left sitting with “their hands on their hearts” if their children were on an H225.
Audrey Wood lost her 27-year-old son Stuart in 2009 when a Super Puma suffered a catastrophic gearbox failure and crashed near Peterhead, killing him and 15 others.
Last night the mother-of-two said: “For them to say they would stick their children in the helicopter I say let them carry on and do it. I’m sure they would be sitting with their hands on their hearts thinking ‘Will our children be coming back?’ As far as I’m concerned, the Super Pumas are now finished. They shouldn’t be flying these aircraft.”
