On the pad for a medical retrieval. Tidal River is located on Wilson's Promontory, one of the most beautiful places in Victoria, and this was the third visit in four days for the air ambulance chopper. The previous day they had to winch a heatstroke victim off one of the walking tracks. VH-VAB carries titles both as 'Helimed 1', its ATC callsign, and as 'HEMS 2' (HEMS 1 being Polair 35, based at Essendon, and HEMS 3 being based at Bendigo). Helimed 1 is based at Latrobe Valley aerodrome.
