Another new registration in the database. This "Dolphin" was also descending and was about to land. "Dolphin" is the nickname given to Eurocopter EC-155 due to its shape. Unfortunately, B-HRX was lost on 26-8-2003 as it crashed into a mountain on Lantau Island, while on its way to Cheung Chau. Two crew members were killed in the accident. It was reported that B-HRX was the first "Dolphin" to be lost. Let's salute to the victims in this accident.
