    good news on the SLH rescue chopper in Southern ocean

    Sounded very grim first thing this morning when the SLH rescue chopper was reported as "missing near Auckland Islands" since 7.30 last night.
    Fantastic news for crew, family and all concerned as all 3 crew found alive and well.
    Hats off to these guys and all the rescue crews.

    No beacons set off. I thought they were stuffed. Awesome result.
