RAF rescue


Link Posted 13/06/2012 - 13:04
Whilst camping in Wales the other week the RAF rescue helicopter was called upon to help someone who I believe had fallen on rocks. Hopefully the injury was not too serious.

The conditions were quite dull and this is perhaps reflected in the colours.

All taken with the K5 and DA55-300 mostly at 300 as I didn't want to get in the way. Very impressed with the skill of the pilot landing where he did, believe they dropped off the stretcher and winchman before taking off then coming back to winch the injured aboard.

I love #4!

It wasn't Prince William driving it was it?

Excellent set!
I life the movement shown in the blades (don't think I've managed to get the body sharp & movement in the blades in any of my attempts at sea kings).
No 3 is probably my favourite.

Nice shots.

I love the heat haze from the exhausts on No. 4 and the depth of field. No. 3 is great as it tells the story helicoptor, paramedics and casualty.
