A RAF search and rescue Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer

A RAF search and rescue Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer, which made a mercy dash to get emergency patients to hospital, had to stop twice because of blizzards.
The four man crew battled through the Arctic conditions to get from Berwick Infirmary to Newcastles Royal Victoria Infirmary and General Hospital for urgent treatment.
Poor weather conditions on the A1 North of Alnwick made it impossible for ambulances to get through.
The patients, who were not named, were a boy with a serious leg fracture, an expectant mother with complications, a man with a heart problem and a woman with serious abdominal problems.

EDITORS COMMENTS
A heroic RAF search and rescue Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer braves treacherous blizzards to save lives. In this photo print, the four-man crew showcases unwavering determination as they battle through Arctic conditions on a mercy dash. With ambulances unable to navigate the snow-covered A1 North of Alnwick, these brave individuals become the only hope for urgent medical treatment. The patients, whose identities remain undisclosed, include a young boy with a serious leg fracture, an expectant mother facing complications, a man suffering from heart problems, and a woman with severe abdominal issues. Their lives hang in the balance as this courageous team takes flight. This snapshot captures not just an awe-inspiring moment but also highlights the power of teamwork and resilience within our aerospace history. The mixed age range of individuals involved signifies that heroism knows no boundaries or limitations. Set against the backdrop of 1980s technology and military uniforms, this image serves as a reminder of the selfless sacrifices made by our Royal Air Force personnel. It symbolizes their commitment to serving humanity in times of crisis.
