helicopter crash Dreamworld car park

Recommended Posts

^ yea but isnt the helicopter leasd out to a company that has dozens of choppers? Thats why there is consistantly a different chopper there. I feel sorry for the people who load and unload the chopper the person would have been watching it come into land, fail, then crash.
This statement was from Mr Caulfield who is the director of James Technologies, the company contracted by Dreamworld to provide joy flights. According to him they have just one helicopter. But I think they would lease a helicopter from another company.

Upon seeing those photos i will retract my previous statement of the possibility of the aircraft being repaired....

So its really just a matter of ringing Bell and ordering another.
