That's dreadful news. I haven't been in Ireland for the last three months, but I know some helicopter pilots. Does anyone know where the helicopter was flying from/to?

Four now feared dead according to the Telegraph...

Chartered helicopter flights in the region are a relatively common sight, with golfing groups and wedding parties known to have used them in the past. There was no immediate confirmation of the nature of the tragic flight.

According to RTE, it was a 6 seater flying from Fermanagh

It flew from Fermanagh to Leitrim Lodge in Mourne Mts, which may be near Rostrevor.

Oh dear...this is definitely stage 1 or stage 2. Posters seeking proximity to the victims and some form of commiserations by proxy. Presumably your proximity to the crash affords you more sympathy.
