Flood Rescues

In January 2011 the greater Brisbane and Toowoomba regions experienced widespread flooding.  Becker Helicopters was called at 4am on 12 January 2011 to rescue 3 people and a dog from a rooftop in Lowood, who had been stranded there for two days.

On the return to base from this mission, our pilots noticed another 14 people stranded on the rooftop of a school.  They evacuated these people to safe ground as well.
