Dr Megan Melidonis, one of our coxswain's from Station Hout Bay, sent us a series of photographs taken while participating in an exercise in False Bay with ACSA (Airports Company of South Africa) last week. The training scenario included a mid-air collision between a passenger aircraft and a charter helicopter scenario.
