Choppers!


I've just been winched up to Rescue 169, RAF Search & Rescue helicopter, operating out of Chivenor in North Devon. I am chuffed.

6 of us were uploaded, and then taken for a spin along the gower coast with the door open. Absolutely breathtaking stuff.

How much weight can they lift?

I can't help but wonder. Nothing to do with your carb-loading.

beats me, but there were at least 10 seats onboard.

However, there were comments about the chopper being pulled down to me rather than the other way round....
