The 16 men who died when their helicopter crashed into the North Sea have been remembered during a service to mark the second anniversary of the tragedy.
Their names were read out at a service at the Kirk of St Nicholas Uniting in Aberdeen.
It was the worst loss of life in the North Sea since the Piper Alpha explosion in 1988.
The 14 passengers and two crewmen were killed when the Bond Super Puma crashed off the North East coast after suffering a catastrophic gear box failure.
Eight of the victims were from Aberdeen and the surrounding area, seven from around the UK, and one from Latvia.
As the wreckage of the aircraft and the bodies of the dead were brought home a stunned oil and gas industry established a task-force to examine helicopter safety. Better training and personal locator beacons have been introduced, the helicopters have also been put under closer mechanical scrutiny.
Although the offshore industry insists helicopter travel is safer, for the loved ones and friends of those who died, they will still be thinking about their ultimate sacrifice.
An initial report into the crash said a catastrophic gearbox failure was to blame. Further investigations are continuing.
