Jim Murphy describes Glasgow's helicopter crash..
The aircraft was a twin-engined Eurocopter EC135 T2+, serial 0546, registered G-SPAO and manufactured in 2007..The pilot was 51-year-old David Traill; Traill had flown Chinook helicopters in the RAF for 20 years, latterly as an instructor..(646 hours of flight experience on the EC135)..The helicopter carried 2 police observers, PCs Kirsty Nelis and Tony Collins..At the time of the Incident it had flown for 6,351 hours and made 9,385 landings..The flight, callsign SP99, was initially involved in the search for a suspected trespasser on railway lines around Eglinton Toll (St Andrew's Cross)..It was then tasked to Dalkeith in Midlothian, around 44 miles (71 km) east of its base, before returning to the Glasgow area..A few minutes before the crash, the pilot had received air traffic control clearance to return to Glasgow City Heliport..At 22:22, approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) east of its home base, the helicopter came down on the flat roof of the Clutha Vaults bar..(Clutha is Latin for the River Clyde, which is adjacent to the pub).. No distress call was made..A ska band, Esperanza, was playing in the pub at the time of the crash and there were reported to be around 120 people in the building, some of whom were trapped by the collapsing roof..32 people were injured, 11 of them seriously..Police appealed for copies of any footage of the scene before or after the incident..The final report was published on 23 October 2015..The Clutha Vaults, 169 Stockwell Street building is a former tenement which used to have multiple storeys, but after a fire in the 60's the upper storeys were removed..They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men..and formed a cult which had never died..Latitude 55° N Longitude 4° W..
