PERSONNEL from RAF Benson took part in a crash exercise involving a Puma helicopter.

The scenario was the aircraft had landed heavily at Chalgrove airfield after developing problems in the air. There were 10 “casualties”.

There was also a simulated crash landing of Hawk jet after its tyre burst at the RAF base.

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, South Central Ambulance Service and Thames Valley Police took part in the exercise.

Flt Lt Steph Seale-Finch, second-in-charge, station operations squadron, said: “It was a crash exercise that we’re required to do every couple of years.

“This was quite an advanced one in that it involved off-station incidents and all the civilian emergency services as well as ourselves.”

Personnel from RAF Benson provided specialist advice to the emergency services as well as setting up a cordon around the area to safeguard any evidence.

“It is vital that we’re all trained and ready for the unexpected,” said Flt Lt Seale-Finch. “We’ll continue to work and practise together to ensure the best results for everybody in the future.”
