Davie ;
The link you gave shows Russian and the name of the vessel ??

Seems he was airlifted by Helicopter from Lossie or Kinloss to either Aberdeen or Inverness I would guess .

Yes Derek the link must have been updated from the time I posted the thread. Just glad the crewmans safely back onshore for treatment. Not the best of days to be picked up off the west coast of Scotland just now ( blowing a gale of wind on the East coast so wouldn't like to know about the Outer Hebrides !! )
