The team now have the vehicle’s customisations functioning. I have sorted out the hardware but it was Nico teWinkel, a software engineer from British Columbia, Canada that assisted us in developing the code that will control the hardware. Please have a quick look at the Sponsors & Supporters page to find out more about Nico and the business that he and his wife Naomi run.

For UKEO vehicle details

Hi folks!

I can now reveal to you that RAF Boulmer’s team vehicle will be a ‘replica’ Sea King helicopter painted in 202 Sqn Search and Rescue livery and will be complemented by ‘working’ rotors, lights and sounds.

Although we do not work for 202 Sqn we thought that customising the vehicle in this way would be a better representation of our unit. The ‘Big yellow helicopter’ is iconic and can be seen flying over Northumberland daily, we think the public and our sporsors will love it.

We’ll keep you posted as the design develops.

Well hello there!

Welcome to the home of RAF Boulmer’s Banger Run team – For UK Eyes Only.

Our mission is simple – Take a car, costing no more than £250 on a 2,500 mile journey around Europe raising as much money and awareness for Help for Heroes as possible.

To do this we need sponsorship, both for the charity and the team’s vehicle. Please give anything you can to support this great charity, like a certain supermarket chain once said “Every little helps!”

Please take a moment to have a look around the site. It will be regularly updated with photos and will be home to our video blog as the project progresses.

Thanks for your time.
