Blowin' In The Wind

 

Two Mk6 Chinooks crewed by 7 Sqn, based out of RAF Odiham, head out over North Sea Wind Farms during a low level insertion to retrieve a downed pilot during a rotary training exercise.

 

Flying from the east coast, northwards up to RAF Boulmer, the Chinooks carried out a tactical extraction of a downed pilot during a simulated training exercise.

 

SAC Nicholas Egan is an RAF Photographer currently based at ACSSU Photo Operations, RAF Halton. After joining the RAF in 2011, he has previously served at Aldergrove Flying Station in Northern Ireland, and RAF Odiham before moving to his current post in February 2017.
