A short promotional film/TV filler on behalf of the RAF Machine Craft Unit at Limassol, Cyprus.
Opening sequence shows a timed exercise, the crew of RTTL (Rescue and Target Towing Launch) 2759 running to man their craft in response to a klaxon alarm - the operation is completed in 14 seconds. Cut to RTTL being winched up slip from water, with close-ups of forefoot and twin props. Montage illustrates skill and efficiency of the maintenance team: port propeller replaced; men repaint hull and clean superstructure; lattice mast struck for radio and radar check. "To be ready for any emergency, men and machines of the RAF Marine Craft Unit have function as one - that's why every craft in the RAF's marine branch gets stem to stern maintenance of the highest order". Cut to klaxon as it sounds the alert - crew board RTTL, let slip, and head for open sea accompanied by Whirlwind helicopter.
