This is the view shipwrecked sailors get when an Agusta-Bell AB-412 approaches them for the rescue. In this case it is Agusta-Bell 412SP c/n 25641 with registration R-03 of the Dutch Royal Air Force's SAR unit. It is not flying over water in this case, but demonstrates its capabilities over Leeuwarden airbase in The Netherlands (EHLW) during the Open Days of the Dutch air force on 17 September 2011. The helicopter is part of 303 SAR (Search and Rescue) squadron, which has three AB-412s in its inventory.
