Hants & IOW Air Ambulance

Hi All,

A low level buzzing of Alverstoke told me that the Air Ambulance was heading onto Stokes bay this morning. She picked up a Sunday league footballer who'd damaged his ankle and whisked him off to QA in Portsmouth for treatment: -

Ahhh yes, I saw this today while walking home from shopping in stubbington, shame I didn't have no camera stuff on me.

Great set, good to see someone catching it.

Wow where did that come from. This is the story. Only been HIOW for 4 days. Great scheme but apparently they are going back to yellow in June.

Further to the announcement earlier this week that Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance will be operating an enhanced model of the familiar Eurocopter 135 with effect from June 2014, the charity is pleased to announce that branding and conversion work has already begun on the new helicopter.

In the interim, as part of Bond Air Service’s re-positioning of aircraft within their fleet, from Thursday 27th February, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance will be operating another Eurocopter 135 . The helicopter will carry the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance logo and branding. However, the eagle eyed may spot that it looks slightly different from the usual branding that has become such a familiar sight across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, and that will return to service in June 2014.
