From Kuantan Air Base we went to the Navy Base via helicopter - Nuri to be exact. This time some of us civilians were kinna freaked thinking about the recent crash. Alhamdulillah the flight went smoothly.
The practice mission involved a 4-engine aircraft, Charlie C-130, flying low in search for the 'survivor', mark the location with flares then fly higher to drop the rescue boat and pararescue team.
The guy in the picture below was part of that team. Here he is explaining the contents of his rescue kit. Cool diving suit, eh?
While I was at the base, I was given the chance to try out the static jump training at the 40ft tower. You people may remember this from the show.
Honestly I wasn't scared of the height. It's more of anticipating the fall when I jump off the tower.
I went too slow that I didn't reach the 'finish line'. Now here's one thing that was edited out from the show where they pulled me further front to a higher ground.
We received positive feedback from various people and I am glad we managed to meet their expectations. Hope you people enjoyed it as much as we did producing this special report :)
