    British Female Helicopter pilot



    ''Tri-Service personnel from the [*******#122449]Joint Helicopter Command (JHC)[/COLOR] are currently training Afghan pilots to fly Russian-built helicopters over Salisbury Plain in a project to develop the nascent Afghan helicopter capability. Report by Tristan Kelly.

    Some years ago the sight of Russian helicopters over the Wiltshire countryside may have caused some concern. However, times have changed, and two Mi-17 helicopters are being used by British forces to train their Afghan colleagues as part of Project Curium.

    The two-year project aims to train Afghan helicopter pilots and build the seed corn of an indigenous force in the country so that fewer UK forces will be required there in the future.
    Secret up until now, the project is being run by QinetiQ on behalf of the Ministry of Defence, and, when completed at the end of this month, 27 Afghan aircrew will have been trained on the helicopters.''

    Be it as it may, men usually take harder the death of a female. I don't know if that is a cultural thing or a deeper, instintive reaction.

    It's been done around here on certain occasions where cadets get to works in some "PR" stuff with LEOs. Nothing close to a hard arrest but still some experience with the population

    If they could make out here to L.A. County, those cadets will definitely get an eye opening experience. They'll learn a lot from a 16-hour AM/PM, weekend shift in at either Lennox, Century, Compton stations then they would their entire career at their own cities. I would gladly take them on a "Ride-Along".

    The Icelandic Police has sent a few cops to various places in the States on an exchange program.
    I read about a few cops who were sent to Las Vegas. To them, they felt the Las Vegas police there were a bit rough with the suspects. They also mentioned that after a SWAT raid, the cops sat all the cuffed suspects on the ground outside in plain view of everybody, which is something they wouldn't do here.

    What works for some... doesn't necessarily mean it will work for all.

    US naval personnel practice a 'visit, search and seizure' operation with their Philippine counterparts during a joint military exercise in Manila Bay on March 13, 2010. The combined US-Philippines naval force drills aimed at combating piracy and smuggling are part of the 'Balikatan' (shoulder-to-shoulder) military exercises between armed forces of the two allies.

    Members of a U.S. Navy boarding team from the USS Harpers Ferry make an initial approach to a suspicious vessel, suspected of trafficking drugs or harboring militants, during a Visit, Board, Search and Seizure training exercise off the waters of San Nicolas shoal in Manila bay March 13, 2010. More than 6,000 U.S. troops are in the country for Balikatan 2010 which aims to enhance interoperability between the two strong allies. This year's exercise is the 26th edition of its series and will focus on humanitarian assistance training and rescue operations following the onslaught of recent typhoons and earthquakes that ravaged Manila last year, a military press statement said on Friday.
