It was just a training exercise, it lowered a crew member onto the Balmoral, circled a couple of time and then picked him up again afterwhich it hovered alongside and took a bow.
If nothing else, it bought everyone out of the bar :lol:

Excellent. 'There's always somebody watching you' Bob! It was a nice day on the beach too. Wondered what that helicopter was doing.

Hi John,

Just seen this photo pop up on the home page and the date rang a bell. I was on this trip :-) , we are sitting amidships just below the white life rafts, wife on the left, daugther in white top and black cap and me on the right. This must have been around the time the rescue helicopter did a training exercise with us.

Brilliant shot and a brilliant day out (Tilbury to Ipswich)

Thanks for posting
