Hi all, Shannon based Sikorsky S-61N "Rescue 115" EI-RCG of the Irish Coast Guard which is a frequent visitor to Galway Hospital landed behind Galway Lifeboat Station today after 7:30pm and stayed on the ground for well over an hour to show some new Galway Lifeboat Personnel the ropes and a general look around this mighty beast, so i hurriedly got down to her to see, and a big thanks to the crew who were very open and friendly and let me and others in for a look around and a brief on her and the equipement.
I wont bore you with more chat so on with the show!
The Winch Used to Lower/Lift Crew and Survivors etc
Looking back from the Cockpit, Behind the Stretcher is a Fuel Tank and FLIR Observer Position, the Blue cover on the ground is the "Sea Tray" this stops saltwater/fluids from gaining access to the inner workings of the S61-N And is easy to maintain
Preparing for Take Off
Bye Bye Rescue 115
Huge thanks to The Crew of Rescue 115,
Hope you enjoyed them,
