Documenting the Logos Hope from the Air

Yesterday I had the honour of photographing the Logos Hope vessel from Transnet's Augusta Westland Aw 109s Helicopter, which was flown by Pilot Hayden Ford, with Co-pilot Mark Bassier, and Wesley Delport as the wenchman/hoist operator.  

It was incredibly inspiring to watch the crew drop off and collect the ship pilots 
from the vessels in anchorage. I was astounded by their level of professionalism.

There's nothing quite like a heli ride over rough seas to get the adrenalin going! 

For those interested in visiting the Logos Hope, here are the details:
