Helipad Open Day

This weekend saw the official opening of the new Helicopter Rescue centre for Mayrhofen.

There are a couple of these dotted around the valley from different firms, all providing much a needed service to evacuate seriously injured patients to the hospital within a short time from fairly inaccessible places (normally ski pistes). They work in close unison with the Red Cross, Mountain Rescue and the Water Rescue, with members from these organizations normally going on to work in the 'Flugrettung'.

Sunday was an open day for the public to come and see the toys that we get to play with, so I took the family down to have look. Weather was fantastic apart from the very strong wind that prevented a couple of events from taking place. The Red Bull Stunt Helicopters did make a show even if in those conditions and I did manage to capture it on video which can be seen here.

Rescue team

I was out running this afternoon and there was a flurry of activity at the landingplatz just outside of town. A total of 3 helicopters were in action, 2 rescue teams from Mayrhofen and Tux, as well as 1 from the Bundespolizei. The mountain rescue were also in attendance as the search for a missing person continues. Hers off to those who put themselves in harms way helping people who  are in trouble. If you can please try to donate to the Oesterreichischer Bergrettung. They are all volunteers and without them a lot more people wouldn't come home.

Boys with their Toys

Letzte Wochenende war ein Modell Hubschrauber Schau am Hotel Hintertuxerhof. Es war spass und die Hubschrauber war kein spielzeug! Das Hotel hat ein super spielplatz auch, und es war ein super tag fuer kinder von alle alter!

Last weekend we attended a model Helicopter show at the Hotel Hintertuxerhof. It was a great day and those Heicopters are not Toys! The Hotel has a great playground too, and it was a great day for children of all ages!

by the side of the road

I was just driving along and saw this sitting by the side of the road in the Zillertal, Tirol, apparently they had been bringing trees down off the side of the mountain. Another day in the valley!
