THE wreckage of the Super Puma which crashed last weekend, killing four offshore workers, has been recovered.
The aircraft was brought in to Sumburgh, off Shetland late on Wednesday night.
Sarah Darnley (45), who is from Elgin, was one of the four workers killed when the aircraft crashed last Friday evening as it approached Sumburgh Airport.
There were a total of 18 people - 16 passengers and two crew - on the helicopter when it came down in the North Sea.
The Super Puma fleet has been grounded since the incident.
The Step Change Helicopter Safety Steering Group, comprising helicopter operators and users, trade unions and regulators, suspended all Super Puma commercial passenger flights to and from offshore oil and gas installations within the UK.
A meeting of the group in Aberdeen on Wednesday broke up around 5.45pm and it is due to reconvene today (Thursday) from 1pm.
The remit of the steering group is to work proactively to identify and address cross-industry issues around helicopter safety, related to helicopter operations in the UK oil and gas industry.
Helicopter operators, oil and gas operators and contractors, offshore trade unions, the pilots’ union BALPA, the regulators HSE and CAA and Oil & Gas UK are all represented at a senior level on the work group.
The temporary suspension of Super Puma helicopters does not apply to the use of search and rescue helicopters for emergency response.
A joint investigation by Police Scotland and the Air Accident Investigation Branch is being carried out into the cause of the Super Puma crash.
