Kinghorn Lifeboat crews honed lifesaving skills during an exercise drill off the Fife coast.
Local crews practised winching casualties from the water on Saturday afternoon.
A Coastguard helicopter from Prestwick landed on a field near Kinghorn Primary School as the exercise got under way.
It followed two call outs for the Kinghorn RNLI earlier on Saturday.
A spokesman for the RNLI said: “We had two call outs today, one to Gullane to support North Berwick lifeboat with the rescue of a kitesurfer in difficulty. Fortunately, he made it safely ashore and we were stood down 10 minutes after launch.
“We had a second job around 12.45pm following reports of a person in the water at Dysart. It turned out this was a diver who was not in any difficulty – false alarm with good intent.
“We then welcomed the Coastguard rescue helicopter from Prestwick for a training exercise.
“They landed at the primary school where our team was briefed on the aircraft before they took off for winch training off Kinghorn.
“Our helms and trainee helms were able to practice forming up under the aircraft while our newer crew got the chance to be winched up and experience that.
“A great afternoon for both teams.”
