Saved! 100 years of Search and Rescue
Saturday 18 July 2015 – 4 September 2016
September 1915 saw RNAS pilot Richard Bell-Davies make the first recognised rescue of a person using an aircraft - an act that earned him the Victoria Cross – and the concept of airborne SEARCH and RESCUE had begun. Experience what it might feel like to be rescued by one of these iconic aircraft and their crew. Using objects ranging from Admiral Sir Richard Bell-Davies’ Victoria Cross to a variety of aircraft types including a ‘walk through’ Search and Rescue Sea King helicopter, this exhibition will tell the 100 year history of this service.
