Prince William in helicopter rescue documentary



Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, will appear in Helicopter Rescue which follows the Search and Rescue team at the Prince's base at RAF Valley on Anglesey.

BBC Wales was given exclusive access to the teams at Prince William's base of RAF Valley on Anglesey for the programme Helicopter Rescue.

The TV programme will show the working day of Flight Lieutenant Wales and some of the missions that he is called out on.

In a teaser for the programme ahead of its broadcast on April 8, Flt Lt Wales is shown flying a Sea King helicopter on a rescue mission to a slate quarry in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The 30-year-old has to hover the helicopter as a boy and one of his crew are winched from the ground after the boy had fallen off an old railway bridge onto rocks.

"As captain you're trying to play out the entire rescue, the transit to the rescue and back again in your mind, and pick up any circumstances or problems you can foresee, and try and fix them on the ground before you get airborne," Flt Lt Wales says in the programme.
