The Duchess of Cornwall has met two patients who credit the air ambulance service in Cornwall with saving their lives.
Camilla, a patron of the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, was also given the opportunity to look inside the bright red and yellow helicopter responsible for emergency rescues.
Dressed in a yellow jacket displaying the charity's pin badge, a white skirt and beige heeled shoes, the Duchess was also celebrating the charity's 25th anniversary.
She officially opened the new headquarters of the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust based at Newquay by unveiling a plaque.
