The Scottish Ambulance Service runs a fleet of air ambulances http://www.scottishambulance.com/what_we_offer/air_wing.aspx (2 fixed wing and 2 helicopters) and is the only publicly funded air ambulance service in Britain. A couple of years ago we lost a fixed wing , when it went down in bad weather of the Mull of Kintyre. Hence the reason for caution in extreme weather conditions.
I know EXACTLY what the parents are going through & my heart goes out to them & their twins, ours were 28 weeks, not 27 & we don't live on an island but the premature birth, the air ambulance (we didn't get a C130 but a helico) the incubators an all the rest.
