Heli-Evac Exercise

Earlier today we heard a loud noise from the helicopter. This time we knew what's happening.

It was helicopter evacuation exercise. The participating agencies include: Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), Singapore Police Force (SPF), National University of Singapore (NUS) and National University Hospital (NUH).

It was fun watching. The Superpuma landed, they are getting the patient out.

But wait, the cameraman has to take a nice shot of it first.

The cameraman now stood still to see the 'patient' being wheeled away.

Another personnel gets out and joins the rest.

After a few minutes, time to go back. Cameraman and another person runs back to the Superpuma.

The door shuts and it's ready for take off.

A lift off!

A turning...

There it goes... Bye!

More photos that usual today :-)
