By Staff Writer | March 3, 2009

Martin Cullen, Ireland’s Arts, Sports and Tourism minister was seated next to the left-side door when it fell off at about 500 feet. The helicopter was a few minutes into its 80-minute trip. No one was injured and the pilot was able to make an emergency landing at a private helipad. The Irish Air Corps inspectors are examining the damage to determine what may have caused the door to fall. For related news
