CHP Med. Flight

On Tuesday the CHP(California Highway Patrol) Eurocopter AS 350 landed across the street at the junior high to pick up a injured person that was in a car crash just down the street. Since they circled over our house twice before landing I had a chance to grab my camera and walk over to take some pictures.

I had a hard time getting the shutter speed low enough to get the rotors blurred but once i did my pictures looked WAY better than the ones that the rotors were frozen in space. Out of about 20 pictures, here are the best ones...

I think that's a F.L.I.R. ball underneath. Correct me if I'm wrong.

In the first two, the engine was shut down, the helicopter arrived about 10 minutes before the ambulance.
