Captain Joseph Wyatt (left) from Oklahoma, USA and First Officer Peter Bello (right), were the pilot and co-pilot of the Bristow Helicopter that crashed yesterday. Both men died.
According to a statement signed by Bristow’s Regional Director Africa, Duncan Moore, Captain Wyatt, joined the company in 2006 and has spent his entire career flying with Bristow Helicopters out of Africa.
Peter Bello joined Bristow in 2014 after graduating from the company’s Academy’s helicopter flight school. May their souls rest in peace, amen.
Recall that a helicopter flying in from Port-Harcourt owned by Bristow Helicopters crashed into the Oworosoki end of the Lagos lagoon around 3pm yesterday. 12 people were reportedly on board when the helicopter went down.
The chopper, marked 5N – BDG – 760540, was flying from an oil rig between Ondo and Lagos states, with contractors of a dredging company, Indigo, who were returning to base.
