    Nassau PD Medevac Mission

    After taking care of some business this morning, I went up to Oyster Bay, grabbed some lunch and parked over at Teddy Roosevelt Part/Beach. After a while, heard sirens, and saw an NCPD helicopter circling overhead. Was going to grab a quick shot of it, when I realized they were getting ready to land in the adjacent LIRR parking lot, so I headed on over. Turned out to be Nassau's newest Bell 407 landing for a Medevac pickup.

    Prepping for the patient's arrival:

    Preparing for takeoff:


    A dusty departure:

    Moose, you should send the loading of the patient and chopper and ambulance to newsday.com. You may make the papers.

    My initial response was "*** Newsday" (I'm sure many of you will know why ) But you're right - I sent them along, let's see if anything comes of it.

    nice shots moose! that brings back good memories of very fun training. i was always curious how they loaded a litter into that helo too...
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
