MedEvac Exercise with Waverley.

Supporting the preservation and operation of paddle steamers Waverley and Kingswear Castle

MedEvac Exercise with Waverley.

Whilst enjoying a cruise round the Isle of Wight in September we were aware of a helicopter approaching. This turned out to be a MedEvac exercise of which Waverley would be the focal point.

The following videos (shot from my mobile phone hence the quality) were taken during the exercise.

(May take a while to load depending on internet connection speed)

(1) The Helicopter lowers the stretcher onto Waverley’s Aft Deck.

(2) The Helicopter returns to remove the “patient”.

(3) The “patient” and Winchman are returned to the helicopter.

(4) Helicopter with “patient” and winchman now safely onboard, returns to base.
