I remember back seeing some pics of people wearing there PAM's at work. I found those posts interesting. Pictures of people and there watches in the field, not desk surfing, after all these watches have their history in the theatre of war. I thought I would put together some shoots of what my PAM gets upto. (It's my one and only, now I've sold my 112 and until my 372 arrives.)

I would love to see what you and your PAMs get up to.


As some will know, I'm a doc. I've specialised in anaesthesiology but also do intensive care and retrieval.

I pick up the very sick to bring the back to the expertise at our hospital.

I get a call and go. I prefer my transport to be quick.

I leave the ambulances to others and rely on the birds of the sky.

This heli is a 'squirrel', our Bell is having issues and being serviced.

I sit just behind the pilot in the centre of the aircraft.

This is where I live, Hamilton in the centre of the north island of New Zealand.

The stadium is home to the Waikato Chiefs. A super 15 rugby team. If you don't know New Zealand is mad on rugby.

This time its a longer trip to the other side of the country so we need to take the fixed wing.

No patient so I'm up front with the pilot.

Love this shot through the propeller.

I prefer the dial on the PAM.

Back in the plane heading home.

Another day, another bird.

Hope you enjoyed the trip, thanks for flying DRAC AIR. Lets see where I go today.


As I said, I would love to see where you and your PAMs go.
