We Are NATO – the Spanish helicopter pilot, Rescue Under Fire

“directed a heroic rescue mission after a helicopter crashed…”

Major Barbancho is a Chinook pilot and Senior Staff Chief of the 5th Spanish Transport Helicopter Battalion (BHELTRA-V). During his participation in NATO’s ISAF mission in Afghanistan, he directed a heroic rescue mission after a helicopter crashed.
A movie based on this mission was released in Spain in early 2017 and Major Barbancho and his team participated in the production of the movie as advisors, trainers, movie extras and pilots of the Spanish Army helicopters used in the production.
