Helicopters in Swanage

This picture of a  Royal Navy "Gazelle" at Peveril Point was provided by John Bentham whilst sorting some photo's out.

We think its dated around the early 1990's but the purpose of the visit is unknown at present.

Another one for the collection.

If I recall the Gazelle was from the Royal Navy "Sharks" display team. It bought in the commentator for the Red Arrows display that took place that afternoon.
I seem to also recall that my dad was on watch (Dave Gough) and the RN SAR helo had to land on at Peveril. The Gazelle pilot had to make a hasty take off and sat hovering off the ledge. True RN talent!!
