Nice sight when you're 30 miles out...

Here's our primary trauma response just after takeoff. Mechanical problems forced it down, where it clipped a fence and toppled. No injuries.

10-09-2005, 22:06
Whew--glad there were no injuries, although I bet it was hard to get that smell outta the aircraft;g Here are some of my aircraft.

10-09-2005, 23:06

10-09-2005, 23:09

I don't fly as a profession. But have done a few flights on it. And as for the comment about "Its a nice site when you are 30 miles out". Couldn't agree with you more...
MCAS Cherry Point SAR Helo. HH-46. Call sign Pedro plenty of room to work in there too.


Also nice when they have a winch... No need to land.

I am a cop from London, England and I posted a thread in the OAF about our Helicopter Air Ambulance that we have other here.

They are just fantastic pieces of life saving kit, and EVERY area should realy have one. The only shame thing is that our one does NOT receive government funding.... :( :(

Here's the link to their web-site.

The great thing is as well, is that they will give priority to LEO's/firefighters etc over the general public.

Some pictures for you....

10-16-2005, 18:02

10-16-2005, 18:05
Last picture for you. This was taken the other week. It turned up at a near fatal accident that I came across while on duty.

The picture was taken with my mobile phone camera, but it is still good quality!

We use either University of Cincinnati's Air Care


University of Kentucky's AeroMed

Both teams are an outstanding crew to work with.

The pic of the chopper flying over the 'Vols stadium is awesome. That needs to be on a flyer or something for the service, or even on a t-shirt. Put it on a t-shirt and I'd buy 1.

What kind of helo is that?

Speaking of the helos in general, for those who crew them, do you like the rear loading or side loading helos? Or can some helos do both? Just curious!

Great pictures!

12-28-2005, 12:42
CalSTAR 6 is a MBB BO-105 (one pilot, two medical crew).

12-30-2005, 11:30
I personally like the helo's that rear load, simply because it is easier and quicker to load, and they usually have a wheeled stretcher. The side loading aircraft typically have a litter vs a wheeled stretcher. We fly both--EC-135, and Bell 407's.

Crappy res but another of Jacksonville's finest. Great background with Alltel stadium and downtown..

Damn! C'mon guys/gals...... the pics of our transport helos are an awesome sight. There has to be MORE!!?? Let's see what you have! :supergrin:

As a side note.... the post that showed our helo down (jacksonville, fl TraumaOne) happened on a Sun afternoon. I happened to be on Trauma call that day and groaned quietly as I left the pool I was getting some sun at and hanging with a few friends. When I got in and heard it was in a sense "prophylactic" based on our helo going down, I could not focus on anything but news that the crew was coming to us alive, and ~just~ the chance to "make things right"..

When I heard they were fine, I have to say, it was one of the best moments in my life. :thumbsup:

I'm not a helo crewmember, but I have been under the disc hundreds of times. I prefer loading and unloading helos that load from the rear. Really, about the only real advantage is that the patient isn't pivoted laterally during the loading process. Sideloading helos aren't really that much more difficult, it's just that there's an extra step involved in load and unload of a patient. As a Paramedic, I prefer to be able to access the entire patient if I need to, and I'm not too crazy about the BO105's because of the inability to access the legs. Otherwise, I have no problems with them. One of these years, I'll be able to transition to flight based EMS...
