    Colin's 5 year old son was also killed as well - very sad and tragic news.

    Jesus,

    why do all these rich people have crashes in helicopters ?

    Lesson for us all, if we ever become rich don't get delusions of having a helicopter and becoming a pilot, every year we hear of rich people crashing their helicopters.

    Maybe there should be stricter driving tests for helicopter pilots and more regular flying hours to keep the skills up ?

    Milan.

    I was having similar thoughts, the stats of rich folks crashing in these machines must be pretty high against professional piliots -

    I think the reason why these rich people die in helicopters is because poor people tend not to own them.

    Very sad all the same
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    So being poor reduces your exposure to risk - I like that - applying for my old job in Tesco's, you should see the mean age of those folks working in my local

    Nope - that isn't what I said. Being poor tends to exclude you from the owning a helicopter brigade. As such, any crash would tend to involve rich helicopter owners and their mates - their mates could be poor though.

    It's the same with expensive sports cars - you tend to find rich people driving these also, unless it has been nicked.
