A High View of Heroes! Photographing the Hampshire and IOW Air Ambulance September 16 2015
Vantage Point Products wanted to seize the opportunity to give credit where credit is due - to all the hard working members Hampshire's Fire and Rescue Services, along with other rescue and paramedic services, especially those funded by charities and supported by volunteers.
For example, take the work of the Hampshire and IOW Air Ambulance service; have we ever considered how many lives have been saved by these brave men and women? Just take a look at their website - http://www.hiow-airambulance.org.uk/
Unfortunately, the Air Ambulance found it necessary to fly into Eastleigh last month - we hope that their mission was a success, and our thoughts go out to those who needed their expert help that day.
Of course, while the presence of a helicopter air ambulance does illicit instantaneous curiosity from the public, it is very important that all in the vicinity be aware of the safety procedures if they approach. Here is a link to the official Hampshire and IOW Air Ambulance guidance and restrictions on approaching the aircraft: http://www.hiow-airambulance.org.uk/latest-news/approach-air-ambulance-safely/. Download the poster, and be ready and safe next time they land or take off near you!
All these shots were taken (from the safe recommended distance) with our 35ft Carbon Fibre Telescopic Imaging Mast, and our 10 x optical zoom, 18.2 megapixel Wi-Fi enabled camera - both available from Vantage Point Products (by request).
