The Anonymous Widower

Cromwell Tower In The Mist

I took this picture yesterday, a couple of hours after the helicopter crashed in Vauxhall.

Helicopters over London, have to fly under what are known as Visual Flight Rules. In layman’s language you must be able to see where you are going.

The visibility yesterday wasn’t good. I have flown fixed wing aircraft in such conditions and it is not easy.  But the difference with a fixed wing aircraft is that you can use instruments to climb through the cloud and get on top of the muck. Provided of course you have the flight ratings to do it, which I had and the airspace rules allow it.

Sometimes the best decision you can take when flying any aircraft is to push it back in the hangar.
