On the 10th anniversary of Flight 491, Noia remembers the victims of the tragic event. On March 12, 2009, Flight 491 was flying to the White Rose and the Hibernia fields when it crashed offshore. Of the 18 passengers on board the helicopter, 17 were lost.
“Flight 491 has had a profound affect upon our province and offshore industry. The memory of those who lost their lives that day remains strong and today we honour them and offer our support to their loved ones.” – Charlene Johnson, Noia CEO
