Brian - you were busy lots of
photos.
The weather started out nice by the
looks of it, but got really bad as time
went on.
Nice memory to those crew members who
lost their lives.

Should make mention that the Pilot of R116
was Captain Dara Fitzpatrick, a Lady and
mother of a 3 year old son.

Sympathy to the Families of all 4 crew members.

I'm sorry to hear the bodies of the
two winch men are still missing.
Hope they still can be found.
