It looks like it's about to fall out of the sky. Rotors should show more motion blur.

Mount Snowdon.

Shutter speed chosen as a compromise between rotor-blur and still being able to see the tufts of grass being whipped up in the rotor down-draft.

Other hikers unrelated to my group had come across a casualty on their decent.
Initially unconscious, the casualty came round a few minutes later and was groggily coherent when the S-92 arrived.
It turned out he was a diabetic (which type I don't know), who thought it would be a good idea to climb and descend the mountain with nothing more than a solitary banana for his day's fuel.

A point of interest is that the nearest stile (for those for whom English is not their native language, this is a means of crossing a fence) had its latitude and longitude coordinates written on it, and the person making the telephone call had noticed this - so the helicopter was able to come directly to where it was needed.

Still an easily avoided deployment though - and the two crew who attended the casualty kept their humour remarkably well.

Nice, shots of a fine machine. Thanks for posting.

I enjoyed reading about good coordinates that did not depend on GPS. Too often we hear the rescue is something like up "caller reports on the trail maybe two miles from the fork beyond the waterfall/"

Take it from an old SAR volunteer, most call outs could be avoided, but most of the time we are just happy to treat and transport a living victim. If it were not for unwise human behavior SAR would be even more about training than it is now.

Thank you with utmost respect for what you guys did/do - you are the silent heros.
