photoblog image Air Ambulance

Air Ambulance

The North West Air Ambulance  is a registered charity and receives no mainstream funding.   It relies totally on the generosity of the people and businesses throughout the region to raise the £1.9 million per year needed to keep it airborne. The helicopter is based in Blackpool airport and makes some 800-900 flights a year. They do a great job in providing a fast response to people in need.

It is seen here taking of from the ariport in a light rain last Saturday.

This must have been a late post yesterday. Composition is very effective - love it. It sort of give one hope to read about communities maintaining this kind of service.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, it was rather late, I had left it unassigned by mistake and only found it at the last minute.
