After 30 years of operation, German Air Rescue DRF (Deutsche Rettungsflugwacht) has logged its 300,000th air rescue mission.

A BK 117 stationed at Stuttgart Airport flew the milestone mission. The crew transported a six-month-old who was born prematurely from a hospital in Göppingen to a children’s hospital in Munich, a trip of 40 minutes.
