The Loss and Legacy of Cougar Flight 491
On March 12, 2009 a helicopter carrying workers to offshore oil production platforms in the North Atlantic crashed into the ocean. Seventeen people on board perished that day. One survived. In 18 Souls, families and friends speak candidly—in many cases, for the first time—about what was really lost and what could have been. A decade later, regulators have not adopted key recommendations aimed at preventing a recurrence of this disaster.
