    Cheers mate. So far no official news on the owner, but it really doesn't look good. Thankfully, friends that were at the game are all safe.

    Thoughts to Leicester Jet, too.

    I read it was something with the tail rotor, that it just broke off, so basically no control and no way the keep it aloft. What the frig. At least no-one got killed on the ground (kind of crazy that didn't happen). RIP. I would make an attempt to pronounce the owner's name, but I won't: Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. Yes, I had to copy and paste that from an article because even spelling Maccagnan is a trial.

    The helicopter manufacturers are advising all owners to have the rotor checked to ensure it was correctly installed - sounds ominous
