Helicopter Exercise

I had the priviledge to be able to take part in a joint RNLI / Royal Navy SAR exercise on the Thames with Gravesend and Tower Pier lifeboat crews. After meeting-up for a briefing at Lifeboat pier with the helicopter crew, we headed towards Dagenham to practise winching with the Sea King.

Images from this exercise are available below.
