NPAS Bournemouth frequently conduct this operation on their helicopter, but who knows what they’re doing and why?

NPAS Bournemouth are located adjacent to our apron, often giving us impressive sights as they literally operate in all weathers!

This Helicopter, an EC135 was originally used by the Northumbria Police on the North East Air Support Unit, hence the registration NEAU. When NPAS came into force all resources were ‘pooled’ and as such each stations helicopter often changes due to maintenance and other factors, resulting in G-NEAU venturing south to Bournemouth.

It was to be said that NPAS are great neighbours, always friendly and always interesting to watch!
