    A super afternoon when we took a group from the Village Youth Club. They were able to see the Police and Air Ambulance machines at RAF Wyton, and so well treated by the video operator who showed them the control room and footage they had taken as well as the paramedic who let them into her machine. It is nice that they took so much trouble with the kids.

    Ha, generally most Law Enforcement Officers don't like being called pigs. Good shot though.

    What a fun day the kids must have had!

    The shot of the helicopter mid-air is lovely - great sense of movement in the rotors, and great clouds as the backdrop

    The twin tail fins are computer controlled and there are ducts either side rather like a mini Harrier. Having no tail rotor maked the machine much quieter and they can back it up with safety to trees or a building as the often operate in tight built-up areas. The pilots usually are ex-military as in this case. The old chap learnt a lot as well as the kids!
