Visibility at night

February 13, 2019

Very hard to photograph as the helicopter produced a severe downwash so my friends had to secure my equipment. This picture simulates a pickup at night exercise.

It was, very hard to do, but so rewarding!

Very hard to accomplish, especially due to the immense downwash of the helicopter. All my equipment was held in place by my friends, who had a pretty good workout.

Join a rescue team and you will not have to simulate another rescue.

They still have to train for the missions, but this was just for photography purposes of course.

Yes, they had to train VERY HARD. I did 34 years of difficult terrain rescue.

Indeed, it's a Dutch NH90 NFH version.
