  • Army Helicopters Evacuated A Hundred Residents In Tenerife


Ejercito de Tierra Español, July 18, 2016 - Four helicopters from Spanish Army Helicopter Battalion Maneuver VI (BHELMA VI) participated between 12 and 13 July in the evacuation of a hundred residents of Punta de Teno (Tenerife) which had been isolated by the collapse of part of the road leading to the town.

Two Super Puma and two AgustaBell 212 performed 14 sorties from the assembly area in Punta de Teno and the port of Garachico evacuating 133 people and 5 dogs totaling 13.3 flight hours.

Some of the flights were carried out at dawn and with bad weather where the pilots had to make use of night vision goggles (NVG) but thanks to their training in night flying and knowledge of the area could solve any complications.

The Army participation in this evacuation was requested by the Cabildo de Tenerife through the Government Delegation in the Canary Islands under the Emergency Plan activated by the Cabildo Insular.
