Helos

A fun day for a few on a course the other week! The helo is directly behind the Police launch and the nose was 6-8 ft from the VHF aerials. One of the shots further down shows the considerable wind disturbance around below the helo which had the effect of blowing the RIB rapidly across the surface - remember to tie everything down! The guy being winched was a client and got the day of his life as he was solo winched into Victor Alpha.

Hi Dan

Victor Alpha was standing in for Whiskey Bravo whilst it was being serviced. Should be back on station this week or next. Was rather confusing as we kept calling them as Whiskey Bravo & they kept using Victor Alpha - took a couple of minutes to twig.
