It's been a bad year in the EMS helicopter community. I wish I knew what causes accidents to come in spurts sometimes. The year after I started flying EMS, 1987, was the worst ever because of the explosion of program startups. This year has started off ugly.
I didn't share it with you at the time, but last month we lost three caring people in Wisconsin.
Today I'm reading about another terrible loss.
These accidents are almost always associated with bad weather or nighttime operations, or both.
I wish I had a magic wand...
