Prince William's rescue

Prince William will play the part of a casualty and be winched into a helicopter during his training to become an RAF Search and Rescue Pilot.

The 27-year-old will undergo the airlift when he returns to RAF Valley on Anglesey.

Flight Lieutenant Wales, who's also the future King, will be learning to fly the yellow Sea King helicopters that we see regularly in the skies above North Wales.

Group Captain Jonathan Dixon, RAF Search and Rescue Force Commander, says:

"I am monitoring him and he's doing very, very well.''

Spokesman for RAF Search and Rescue at Valley, flight Sergeant Andy Carnell has told Heart:

"Acting as a casualty for other course members and instructors is a routine part of search and rescue training at the 203(R) Squadron operational conversion unit.  It is also an opportunity for members of the course to experience what it is like to be handled as a casualty in various situations."
