Having one Air Ambulance is pretty special, having four is amazing!

The Wales Air Ambulance now has four air ambulances, three H145s (based at Welshpool, Caenarfon and Llanelli) and the H135 Children's Air Ambulance based at Cardiff. Between them they cover 8,000 square miles of Welsh countryside however we managed to fit them onto one short stretch of runway for a photoshoot - and pretty fine they looked too!

For more information about the Wales Air Ambulance, and to support them, click here.
