Helicopter landing at pier

Hoboken411 readers Hobo87 & Kingfox sent these pics in. Cool!

3/22/2008:

I just got out of the (much needed) shower, and heard that a Medivac chopper is about to land at Pier A…

I’ll never get down there in time… anyone who’s near, (or was) snap a pic and send it in!

If MedEvac was involved…whatever happened was horrible. Morbid rule of thumb: if you’re involved in any kind of accident, the last thing you want to see is a MedEvac.

I’m with Blahblahblah on this one: here’s hoping – if it was them – that the kids are alright.

It was a EUROCOPTER Model MBB-BK 117[/quote]

According to wiki “STAT MedEvac: Is among the largest aeromedical agancies in the United States, with 17 helicopters bases in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, and Maryland- serving thoses states and West Virginia. It also operated a fleet of fixed-wing aircraft. Its main dipatch center is in Pittsburgh, PA. STAT Medevac” is part of the center.

Helicopters are the coolest flying contraptions we’ve come up with so far. IMO.
