Mine disposal training with a Sea King helicopter being the method of insertion and extraction. Aerial mine disposal is a good method of neutralising a floating mine or object posing as a threat.
This photo I was entering the water off Jervis Bay for live-firing mine disposal training. I was keeping my eyes peeled on the horizon because if you look down your sure to face plant. There is also the thought in the back of my mind that I have a plastic explosive pack zipped in the chest of my wetsuit and although it won’t detonate I still don’t particularly want to do be doing a belly flop!
