At Sea (---), 26/11/2015.- A handout photograph made available on 28 November 2015 by the British Ministry of Defence showing a British Royal Air Force (RAF) Sea King Search and Rescue Helicopter rescuing a British man from the Russian cruise ship MV Akademic Sergei Vavilov as it visited South Georgia, 800 nautical miles to the east of the Falkland Islands. on 26 November 2015. The casualty was in a serious condition with a major injury to his arm and urgent specialist medical attention was needed. Due to the long distances involved, the helicopter flew to the British Navy's HMS Clyde, an offshore patrol vessel, and refuelled before traveling a further 100 nautical miles to the Akademic Sergei Vavilov. Once the helicopter was in position over the cruise ship, the casualty was winched into the helicopter, which then returned to Stanley, on the Faklands.
