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. Sitting in a life raft is not always fun, you can get quite queasy from the experience.DSC_5880DSC_5888DSC_5904 DSC_5908 Dr Megan Melidonis, NSRI Hout BayDSC_5926DSC_5933 Some of our rescue crew in an 8 person life raft drifting in 3.8m swell and 30 knot winds.
