I don't remember any "disturbances" in Bosnia-Herzegovina during the '99... This looks like a drill to me. The only real disturbances in 1999 were those in Kosovo, Bosnia&Herzegovina was already 3 years in peace at this time.

Thanks - wrongly captioned and amended accordingly.

We did have three shooting incidents in '99, but as you point out, it was mostly in-country R&R due to the 2-can rule still being available to us in those days...

Current ops are entirely 'dry'.

Arkady - I was unit photogrpaher with 23 Para Field Ambulance. They did an exercise near Vitez on Route Diamond I think with the mountain rescue team from TSG and used the Seaking above. Remarkably similar.
If this is an exercise I think you should make it clear in your preamble.

I've flown in a Sea King a few times when i was young. My dad Worked On the SAR at Prestwick, Scotland. I have a a hand full of photo's... nothing spectacular because they were taken with a despossable camera.. but still they're good photo's to me!

This picture.....it brings back many unpleasant memories for me. Things I would rather forget. But things the world needs to see because otherwise they will never know what happened in their life times. The atrocities as well as the acts of heroism.

I thank you greatly sir for making this picture and for keeping alive memories that are fast fading. Never let them fade away.

A Sea King? AND IT STAYED AIRBORNE?!? no, wait, it crashed right after the pic was taken, didn't it? I've ridden in those flying deathtraps... Canada is STILL using those antiquated POS's... They're over 40 years old! All bitching aside, that is a VERY powerful picture, well done!

lol....I LOVE Sea Kings...they came and got us when everything else was grounded on many, many occasions, mostly due to the Royal Navy Pilots, who are the best of the best IMO...

They are most definitely the workhorse of the air, but Canada's fleet is so antiquated it's SCARY. We've lost people at sea because the damn things literally fell out of the sky! I think there's even video out there of a Sea King's rotors coming off of it in mid-flight, but I haven't found it yet... Either way, that was an amazing shot, I would like an opportunity to go back to places like Bosnia (armed with only a camera this time) and show people what it's really like... Someday I will.
