RAF Lossiemouth Mountain Rescue Team returned to deployed training on the weekend.
A great sigh of relief and a few hands on hips as they took in the fresh air of the Scottish Highlands.
It’s good to be back !

On Saturday evening, after a full day of training, 3 of our RAF Valley MRT personnel heard of a Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team callout developing. As our personnel were in the immediate vicinity of Llanberis MRT base, they decided to offer their assistance which was accepted by Llanberis MRT. This combined fast party drove along the extremely busy Miners Track (Snowdon). The vehicles were parked up, rescue kit distributed across the fast party and the rest of the journey to the casualty was made on foot. The casualty was located 100m up from Glaslyn on the Pyg Track, they had sustained a lower limb injury and unable to walk. A combined effort from the Llanberis and Valley personnel quickly splinted and packaged the casualty into a stretcher and moved to a suitable location for the incoming Coastguard helicopter (Rescue 936). The casualties location was signalled using smoke and Rescue 936 quickly winched the casualty away to safety. Another job well done by all involved !

Great Weather + Bank Holiday Weekend = Amazing Training Opportunities !!
Our RAF Valley MRT made the most of the North Wales sunshine on the weekend. After such a long pause in training, it is refreshing to see smiles on our troops faces again as they return to Snowdonia and the local climbing venues on the Isle of Anglesey.
