Isles of Scilly helicopter service resumes amid row over 'spoiling tactics'
Six years after the last scheduled chopper landed in St Mary’s, the Guardian was on board the controversial new service
With a roar of engines and a thump of blades, the helicopter rose above Land’s End airport, darted across the ocean and 15 minutes later touched down on a landing area dotted with daisies and buttercups on the Isles of Scilly.
After an absence of six years, the Scilly helicopter service – a thrilling treat for visitors and a lifeline for islanders – had resumed.
