very lucky people indeed especially with the weather being in their favour and the chopper staying upright after landing

One of my biggest fears everytime we take off and land is having problems. I am an horrific flyer when it comes to going to and from work every month.

We found out this morning that the chopper left us yesterday, dropped off our crew and then reloaded before heading out the Galaxy 1. Out of the 18 crew 11 were Transocean folk.

Glad they are ok. One of the grateful rare times we can actually say that.

I was on a job off Malaysia.... few days before I was due out a super puma ditched and the pilot was killed. All the passengers survived. We had to sit through Exxon sponsored 'counselling' session before getting on the helicopter. They had another councillor available for 1 on 1 sessions, and a nurse to calm you.

Cant see how any of it helped! I think the majority were made more anxious!!
