Aircraft in emergency landing incident is not on hire to OSRL
We are saddened, but thankful to know that the seven crew members involved in the emergency landing incident involving the Lockheed C-130A at the Santa Barbara Airport escaped without injury.
The said aircraft, still bearing the Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) livery, was not on hire to our company at the time of the incident. The OSRL contracted aircraft, registration N121TG, is in Malaysia and remains response ready to support our members.
