" Helicopter flights from Penzance to Isles of Scilly
End of Scilly’s helicopter link
Economic fears as helicopter axed
The Penzance-Isles of Scilly helicopter service has touched down in Cornwall for the last time after its operator decided it was not profitable.
British International Helicopters (BIH) operated flights from Penzance to Scilly for almost 50 years.
It means travel to and from the islands will now be by plane or ferry, the Scillonian, which runs in the summer.
Emergencies will be answered by the Royal Navy air sea rescue crews and the Cornwall Air Ambulance"
