Washing the helicopter after a mission.
Cervia, Italy. 2011.

“I have been following air rescuers in action for days, and I was struck by their strength, endurance, and ability to think and perform in every situation. This is the most incredible job I have ever seen and the most amazing story I have ever told in all my life. The department is operative 24/7, with intervention times ranging between 30 and 120 minutes. They intervene by helicopter: once they arrive, they locate the victims, they descend, they rescue and secure them and then they bring them up. And after every mission over the sea, the helicopter is washed with fresh water to prevent corrosion.”
