Rescue chopper crew shows how we look from above

AN RACQ Careflight helicopter rescue crew has given the Fraser Coast a rare glimpse of what it looks like from the sky.

The Sunshine Coast-based crew snapped this picture during a flight between Hervey Bay and Nambour this week, one of about 32 to the area so far in 2014.

With several thousand people expected to travel to the Fraser Coast during the Easter long weekend, Careflight chief executive Ashley van de Velde warned travellers to be vigilant.

"It's not just the amount of missions that increase but the nature of the injuries are often far worse during these periods," he said.
