UPDATE: One Midlands Air Ambulance cleared for flight
ONE of the three helicopters operated by Midlands Air Ambulance grounded by their operator Bond Air Services, is now clear for flight.
Following an inspection by Bond engineers, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill airbase in Staffordshire will resume normal service in the morning.
Inspections on the two further Midlands Air Ambulances based at Cosford and Strensham are continuing with a view to them returning to normal operation tomorrow.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Clearly safety is our number one priority and will be guided by the operator of the aircraft.
“The crews that would have been flying today have been responding on land vehicles as they would if the weather had stopped the helicopters flying.”
It is the same model which crashed on to The Clutha bar in Glasgow on November 29, killing nine people.
