Air Corps sets patient record

THE Air Corps yesterday set a new record by completing five air ambulance missions in 60 hours.

Using both fixed-wing and rotary aircraft, the "air ambulance rescues" involved transporting patients to and from the UK and mainland Europe.

Since Tuesday, five emergency missions -- using a Learjet, a CASA fixed-wing aircraft and an AW139 helicopter -- transported patients to Baldonnel, the Czech Republic and to both Newcastle and Manchester airport in the UK.
