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...

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