Vapour in cabin forces Bristow helicopter to return to Sumburgh for inspection

A Bristow helicopter was forced to land at Sumburgh Airport for checks after the two crew members detected a moist vapour in the cabin.

The S-92 returned to the airport for engine inspections as a precautionary measure shortly before 9am on Friday morning.

A spokeswoman for Bristow Helicopters said the aircraft took to the air again soon afterwards when no fault was found.
