A RAF Westland Wessex helicopter taking part in a mountain rescue, pictured here at the Pen-y-Pass car park opposite the youth hostel. I stayed in the youth hostel on the night this picture was taken and I recall watching footage of this very scene on the BBC News on the television that evening. If my memory serves me correctly they were searching for a walker who had gone missing on Snowdon on Saturday, two days earlier. I think, today they had recovered a body.
