The wreckage of the Dublin-bound helicopter that went missing yesterday has been found.

North Wales Police have confirmed that the wreckage of the craft has been found, along with the bodies of the five passengers. 

The Dublin-bound helicopter went missing after it took off from Luton yesterday evening. 

No mayday or distress call was received.

The UK Coast Guard called off the search last night, "due to low lying cloud," which made "visibility extremely poor and hampered the search efforts."

The search continued this morning.

A helicopter has collided with a Co Longford pub, skidding into the nearby banks of the Royal Canal.

Incredibly, both passengers on board have survived the accident, though several bystanders have been treated for shock.

Oh no

Posted by Mellissa Hendrix on Wednesday, 15 July 2015


The incident took place at 9.15pm yesterday in the village of Abbeyshrule in Co Longford.

​The pub in question is the well-known Rustic Inn bar and restaurant.

Ciaran Doyle, 14, told RTE Radio today that he was doing work on his family's home with his father when they spotted the helicopter flying unusally low – prompting them to follow its flight path to investigate.


“I went up with my phone and recorded it, and it was hovering over the canal and we were watching it and it started to go in close to the Rustic Inn pub in the centre of the village,” he explained. 

“It was coming towards the back when it swung around and hit off the back of the wooden back of  the Rustic.

“It tore it, and there was water coming out, and the minute I saw it my hands started to shake and I picked up the phone and dialled the emergency services,” he said.


RTE.ie also reports that while the pilot and one passenger have not been seriously injured, significant structural damage has been caused to the pub.

A spokesperson from the Department Of Transport said two members of the Air Accident Investigation Unit attended the scene, and Gardaí have preserved it for a full investigation



Prince William bagged a helicopter worth £6.5 million as a birthday present.

Wills turned 32 yesterday and was given a 2008 Augusta A109S Grand helicopter from the Queen; his grandmother.

The chopper, which we’re guessing wasn’t gift-wrapped, can hold one pilot and up to seven passengers.

Wills is a helicopter pilot – having served in the Royal Air Force – so he might be the one flying him and Kate to and from all their engagements.

No pressure on Kate to match that gift, then…
