The cause is angry when there is a response by PaulT

It amazes me the comment in the last sentence of:

I dare say a lot of people were angry with him - he was the one who set off the alarm. Perhaps if it was in the US the helicopter would have been blasted out of the sky

"Don't think of them as problems, think of them as opportunities."
"OK, I think I've hit an insurmountable opportunity!"

He added: "Our pilot was just in shock. He was quite angry and when we landed he went off to find out why it had happened."

I would be very concerned if any Pilot of an Aircraft I was a passenger in, did not know he / she had sent a distress signal

I'm not entirely sure that I accept this story prima facie.

A pinch of salt springs to mind ;)

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

....and why would the fact that the helicopter being ex-military made it safer? The RAF fly ex-cilivian VC10s so that therefore makes them less safe? The pilot is just making a smokescreen for his own negligence.
