Two Army Air Corps aircrew killed in helicopter accident 22 December 2003. Captain Andrew Nicoll and Sergeant Simon Bennett were killed when a Gazelle helicopter crashed in Londonderry on 22 December 2003. Captain Nicoll, aged 27, was the pilot of the helicopter. Single, he came from Grantham in Lincolnshire and was a keen sportsman; in particular a distinguished canoeist. 

His co-pilot was Sergeant Bennett, aged 35, who was married with three children and came from Telford in Shropshire. Both men were serving with 5 Regiment, Army Air Corps, based at RAF Aldergrove. "This is a terrible loss for family, friends and colleagues, and our thoughts and prayers are with the relatives of both pilots. The tragedy has touched colleagues right across Northern Ireland." Lieutenant Colonel Duncan Venn, the Commanding Officer of 5 Regiment AAC also paid tribute: "The loss of these two fine young men is a great tragedy. Sergeant Simon Bennett, the aircraft commander, who had recently transferred to the Army Air Corps from the Welsh Guards, was a great character. He was a man of many talents, hugely popular within the Regiment, and above all, he was a family man who had been married for fifteen years. "Captain Andy Nicoll, the pilot, was a cheerful, well-liked officer, who only finished his pilot training in July. A talented sportsman and world-class canoeist, he was shortly to depart for Australia to continue his training in preparation for the 2004 Olympics. "Their loss has caused great sadness throughout the Regiment, and our thoughts and prayers are with both families, to whom we extend our deepest sympathy."
