The accident helicopter was the same model as the one pictured, a Super Puma EC225.

The reason is the recent findings from the accident investigation team to investigate the serious accident that occurred at the end of April.

A helicopter crashed on the way from an oil platform, outside Bergen, and all 13 on board were killed.

Shortly after the event was the helicopter type of passenger traffic in Norway and the UK, but now it may not be used for search and rescue operations in Norway, according to the decision.

The reason is the results of the investigation, which shows that a fatigue crack in the gearbox may have caused the accident.

Civil Aviation Authority points out that the incident is still under investigation and that no definitive cause has not yet been established.
