Wales Air Ambulance has made its 18,000th emergency flight, saving hundreds of lives in the process.
The service, which launched on St David's Day 2001, has three helicopters based in Swansea, Welshpool and Caernarfon.
It operates 365 days a year and costs £6 million to run annually - all of which is funded by public donations.
Angela Hughes, Chief executive of the Wales Air Ambulance, said: “Attending 18,000 call outs is a staggering amount, and just goes to show how vital a resource the air ambulance is to the people of Wales.
“We’re proud of the amount of lives we’ve saved over the last 12 years, and can’t thank our generous donors and fundraisers enough for keeping us in the air."
