Glad everyone walked away!

According to the article it hit a "castle with the propeller". Considering the wedding went on, apparently a far less serious situation.
I'm a pessimist, that way I'm either always being proven right, or pleasantly surprised.

Unique wedding anyway.
Thankfully the Bulli Tops one didn't repeat.

Try calling off wedding and pay all family money savings etc for expensive function etc.
Nobody hurt? Let's just resume with 44 bonfire in background.

Over year earlier another Brazil based 44 wedding SCUD&IMC run ended with 4 fatalities (+6mth unborn baby) I just had look at the other heli forum thread.

Fact is, mistakes pile up on 44s in Brazil a lot past years. From newbie or hot dogging it mistakes to also human factors. Getting away with poor viz/sub VFR conditions until they don't. Just like the bragging Mr Farikh, taking some lives with him.
