The Exeter based EC135 Eurocopter prepares to land at the new North Devon base. With your help the Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT) will be ordering a brand new helicopter, just like this one, at the end of 2010.
Judi meets the family of pilot Steve Ford who the new airbase is named after. Steve tragically died in a motorcycle accident.
DAAT operates two helicopters; one from Exeter, one from North Devon (which is leased). It's hoped our appeal will raise the remaining money needed to order a brand new, purpose built aircraft.
