Training day – RAF Leconfield

Six team members joined members from Bowland Pennine MRT in a Sea King training day at RAF Leconfield. Following a helo safety brief and Q&A session, each member was winched into the helicopter hovering above and taken on a short flight in the surrounding area. This was very much an experience that will not be forgotten!
