RAF Leeming medics take part in simulated airfield attack
ROYAL Air Force medics have been practicing their response to an air attack on a North Yorkshire airfield.
RAF Leeming is playing the part of a foreign airbase being used by UK and French forces as part of Exercise Capable Eagle, a test of the two countries’ ability to mount a combined air operation.
The exercise sees personnel planning, preparing for and flying missions, while facing a series of challenges.
One of the challenges was an attack by aircraft from 100 Squadron - itself normally based at RAF Leeming.
The simulated attack left a number of simulated casualties, giving the RAF’s healthcare experts a chance to test their skills.
