Ever wondered what it's like to fly in an Army helicopter? This Virtual Reality video allows you to (almost) do just that. Watch as one of our crew talks down an Wildcat onto a landing pad in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Don't forget your headset!

Thanks for the messages about Sandy. The last time he was in Arnhem before that weekend he was leaving after the gallant failure of Operation Market Garden as a young paratrooper. He hadn’t been back since, and decided to arrive by parachute, 75 years later to the day.

Sandy gave us the honour and privilege of jumping him into Ginkel Heath last September, 75 years on. He was as brave last year as he was in Arnhem all those years ago.⁣ ⁣ Our thoughts and prayers are with those he leaves behind. ⁣ ⁣ Sandy, we'll see you in the FRV.

Gutted to have to report that Sandy - a combat veteran of Arnhem who I jumped into The 75th Anniversary commemorations with last year in Holland, has headed to the final RV in the sky. His generation so special; the highlight of my time in post. A genuine British hero πŸ’”

Sandy Cortmann made his first return to Arnhem last year, for the 75th anniversary. He marked it by parachuting from a plane, aged 97. He spread joy to whomever he spoke with, including me Thinking of him today, with gratitude and respect

It is with great sadness we inform you of the loss of Sandy Cortman. Pictured below was Sandy’s only return to Arnhem in 75 year, so at least this time it was with happier memories. Sandy will be sadly missed by us all but never forgotten. Utrinque Paratus RIP Sandy
