"Die Bergretter im Himalaya" (The Mountain Rescuers in the Himalayas) Air Zermatt - DVD
Article number: 87
Until now, no one had dared to carry out helicopter rescue operations at altitudes of over 7000 meters. They were simply considered too dangerous. That was about to change when Air Zermatt and the pilots of Fishtail Air from Nepal began building a rescue station in the Himalayas in 2009. The documentary series is about audacity, flying, at the limit and the fate of pilots and mountaineers in the midst of eight-thousanders. A tragic crash that occurred while shooting this series overshadowed the project and called everything into question. A team from Swiss Radio and Television SF DOK accompanied the "Mountain Rescuers in the Himalayas" for two years.
