G-SASH is the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. It is a MD902 Explorer and replaced G-PASG in July 2005. With the side door open you can see how a recumbent casualty is loaded onto a swiveling platform.

The side view of the Explorer. It is painted in a bright yellow colour with some sponsors’ adverts. It can take two paramedics to emergencies at up to 154 mph. In addition to the pilot and paramedics, it can carry a stretcher casualty plus two other seated passengers. Notice how the helicopter does not have a rear tail rotor, making it much safer when people are walking around it.
