Don't like seeing these,most times they are needed. They do get to the hospital quicker than the ambulance and do a sterling job

I live in a very rural area and the nearest hospital is 40 miles away, so the air ambulance is vital in an emergency. Itís well-supported by local communities, as we all recognise the life-saving work they do, and how essential they are.

They do magnificent work carting some of us bikers to A&E.

This one landed because a man had fell out of a tree, but after being checked over they decided to just use a ambulance to take him to the hospital
It had a film crew tagging along so it might be on the telly at sometime.

Here it is taking off on the video.

Well done to the air ambulance crews. I salute them, and the ambulance crews, lifeboat crews, mountain rescue crews etc. etc. I hope none of us ever need them, but it is a comfort to know they are there. I have watched them on tv and they seem caring, compassionate people as well as experts in their jobs.


Comment by Veronica on 17th September 2018 at 19:43
No doubt about it they are needed- you know someone is injured in one way or another when you hear them from below. The crews must see some terrible sights - not everybody could do that job that's for sure. Heros all of them.

We managed okay before these noisy, fuel swiggin' beggars turned up. I've noticed that they tend to turn out the chopper when it simply isn't needed. Too often to my mind...


Comment by Mick on 19th September 2018 at 22:42
Tracy they turn out because if there is something badly wrong with the patient they can be whisked away to the best hospital to treat them.
Its no good being taken to Wigan infirmay if your having an heart attack, the hospital you want is in Manchester, burns will be in another, and back injuries will be somewhere else.
