4 Regiment Army Air Corp Gazelle Helicopter

4 Regiment Army Air Corp Gazelle conducted winter training in the mountainous region above Bardufoss, Norway.
Exercise Clockwork 06 was a 14-week training exercise, which ran from December 05 to March 06 and was held at the Norwegian Air Force base of Bardufoss. Its aim was to prepare personnel from all three services to operate in extreme cold weather environments, such as might be experienced during winters in the Balkans or Afghanistan.
Throughout the flying phase of the exercise, Joint Helicopter Command Battlefield helicopter crews from the Royal Air Force, Army and Royal Navy, practiced such skills as snow landings in whiteout conditions, moving personnel from point to point and conducting navigation exercises. Personnel from 33 Squadron RAF Benson, also practised carrying under slung loads beneath their Puma helicopters, during both day and night operations.
The 3rd phase of the exercise, saw participants attend a cold weather survival course, during which they spent 5 days and 4 nights in the Arctic environment of the 500 metre high Norwegian mountains surrounding Bardufoss, where temperatures dropped as low as minus 32 degrees and visibility fell to just a few metres. Mandatory for all personnel who had not done survival training, they learnt how to survive in the sub zero temperatures by digging snow holes, navigating in the harsh terrain and responding to an enemy attack

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the intense winter training of the 4 Regiment Army Air Corp Gazelle Helicopter in the picturesque mountainous region above Bardufoss, Norway. The image is a testament to Exercise Clockwork 06, a rigorous 14-week training exercise that aimed to equip personnel from all three services with the necessary skills to operate in extreme cold weather environments. During this exercise, Joint Helicopter Command Battlefield crews from the Royal Air Force, Army, and Royal Navy honed their abilities in challenging conditions. They practiced snow landings in whiteout conditions, transported personnel across various points, and conducted navigation exercises. Additionally, members of 33 Squadron RAF Benson perfected carrying under slung loads beneath their Puma helicopters during both day and night operations. The third phase of this comprehensive training involved attending a cold weather survival course. Participants endured five days and four nights in the Arctic environment surrounding Bardufoss where temperatures plummeted as low as minus 32 degrees Celsius and visibility was reduced to just a few meters. This mandatory survival training taught individuals crucial skills such as building snow holes for shelter, navigating through harsh terrain, and responding effectively to enemy attacks. Corporal Scott Robertson skillfully captured this momentous occasion on film; his photograph serves as a powerful reminder of the dedication and resilience exhibited by armed forces personnel when preparing themselves for missions in unforgiving climates like those found in Balkans or Afghanistan winters.
