^All good for the camera man, Chris Jackson is it, pays him 500 a go to go and take these pr photos.  Probably changed his gear and pushed off as soon as the camera stopped rolling.

^ Funny you should mention that name. The other day I received a post card purchased at Windsor Castle from a friend who lives on that side of the pond. The photo was taken by none other than Mr. Jackson himself.

If I weren't already convinced that these Willy at Work shots weren't set up, seeing Jackson's name on the back of that postcard would have solidified it for me.

I hope Wills is not trying to re-up and avoid royal duties. More publicity spin. The comments must be scathing, DM chose to moderate them in advance.

I actually was wondering just where the Dolittles were since the wedding.  Yes she went to the flower show but they are a no show since then and she was"very busy" before the wedding and was seen.  I guess she is in her garden and he is saving cats who were placed in trees.  PR nonsense.

He's the pilot, not the rescuer; he should be staying in the cockpit, not getting out to hold the hand of a patient or scrambling to help anyone. I am so sick of his Bond style promotional articles since it's not like he's someone who basically is paid to do anything other than steer the stupid thing. How many more years of playtime is he going to get? He was supposed to have quit back in 2013 and done dozens of appearances a week since then.

Willy The Slacker and His PR team are just so transparent. He is a lazy lout who is just useless. He needs to step up or get the hell out.

In this context the term 'scrambled' simply means he was called out to the job. It is a slang term. It was used a lot during WWII when the pilots were 'scrambled' to fly the sorties against the Germans during the Battle of Britain.

It doesn't necessarily mean he did anything more than was called out for a quick take off to get to the place of the emergency.

We do see him get out of the helicopter a lot. I regularly visit the Air Ambulance station here in Sydney due to its proximity to my workplace and so we take kids there for one reason or another for excursions and I have asked them whether the pilots would ever leave the helicopter and the answer has always been 'yes' if we are able to help and it won't slow down the rescue. As it usually takes ten to fifteen minutes to get the patient secured into the helicopter and then get the doctors etc in if the pilot can be of use then they will be called into service to assist'. They would expect William to be able to leave the helicopter on many occasions but not always e.g. a cliff-face rescue or a rescue at sea but once the helicopter is actually on the ground and work is to be done on the ground there is no reason why they pilot can't be assisting in the search and even in comforting the patient while the medical team do their work. They told me it actually is a help as it means that no one from the medical team is needed to be giving that comfort and reassurance and the pilot can also add the reassurance about the actual flying part of the trip.

After that discussion I am less inclined to criticise William for leaving the helicopter.
