§ Mr. Menzies Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence at what time RAF Leuchars was advised of the needs to provide an aircraft to rescue David Pascall on Sunday 28 June; at what time the aircraft was scrambled; how long was the flight time to the point of pick up of Mr. Pascall; how long was the flight time from the point of pick up to Vale of Leven hospital; and at what time the aircraft returned to RAF Leuchars.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
RAF Leuchars was advised on Sunday 28 June at 2.03 pm. The aircraft was airborne at 2.10 pm, reaching Mr. Pascall some 35 minutes later. Once Mr. Pascal] was on board, the aircraft took 20 minutes to reach the Vale of Leven hospital, after which it returned to Leuchars, landing at 5.25 pm. The Royal Navy search and rescue flight at Prestwick, which operates to the same 15 minutes standby as the RAF search and rescue flight at Leuchars, would have had a similar transit time to the incident.
