Explanation: The RAF rescue helicopters get chance to practice their skills with rescues in the mountains. Climbers and Hillwalkers sometimes get lost, stranded or injured in the hills. While climbing on Scafell Pike, an RAF helicopter came to rescue an injured climber at the bottom of the climb. This gave the opportunity to get some shots, from above, as the helicopter attempted to get close in.
