This picture shows G-SASH one of the the Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopters coming in to land on the roof of the Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) in Leeds city centre this weekend.
I have never before seen this helicopter close enough to get a photo and I was surprised that there is no tail rotor. I served in the military for some years and have been onboard quite a few types of helicopter, this is a more recent development.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity flying two helicopters G-SASH and G-CEMS, they are both MD 902 Explorers.
