A Copterline helicopter crashed into the sea a few km from Tallinn, at 12.45 today shortly after departure. It was a scheduled commercial flight to Helsinki with 2 crew and 12 passengers. No one survived. The rotor separated and remained afloat, the rest has sunk in 50 to 60 m of water.

Well, hopefully that was the third in the recent series of commercial crashes and we can have a respite now!

We did not.
The rescue has caused a fair deal of arguments - as usual. The black box is to be sent to UK - controversially. The second pilot is missing - again controversially, though this seems more settled now..
