Just talking about this last night here in KL with a guy who had been on Piper A, Claymore etc. Personally, I worked offshore on the Piper B project.

Cant believe it is thirty years ago now.

RIP.

Unfortunately I remember it well. I was on detached duty at Stonehaven Radio. A very sad day in the town.

RIP.

I will always remember this day. I woke to the pictures on the news. Then spent all day at work as the tragedy unfolded.

R.I.P.
