Flying Over Coate 

New Wiltshire Air Ambulance takes to the skies over Swindon - SEE PICS


New Air Ambulance
soars over Wiltshire

Special thanks to Richard Wintle at Calyx Picture Agency for sending over these great shots of Wiltshire Air Ambulance's new state-of-the art helicopter in action.
 
The Bell 429 helicopter is the world's newest and most advanced light twin-engine helicopter in service, and is the first of its type to operate as an air ambulance in the UK.
 
Incorporating yellow and the distinctive Wiltshire 'green', the helicopter will cost around 2.5 million a year to operate and commences full time operations from January 1st next year.
 
But that didn't stop a quick trip 'around the block' as it took in sights across the county including Silbury Hill near Avebury, All Canning's Church, Devizes, and our very own Coate Water - before returning to land at The Great Western Hospital in Swindon.
