Copter 1?

Postby ChrisK » Sun May 06, 2007 5:56 pm

Does anybody know where Copter 1 is? I heard they were down for maintenance. I think they've been gone at least a week. Did they have some failure or is it routine? If it's routine, it seems kind of odd to schedule it just at the beginning of fire season. They would have been helpful on the fire today.

I heard Copter 1 get requested for an airlift a week or two ago and they said it was out of service until "Mid May"

I did hear part of a conversation today that mentioned "in Van Nuys for five weeks." Maybe they were talking about Copter 1. I wonder what is being done that would take so long.

I know it was out of service for a time a while back when the FLIR and video system were installed, but that was done at Palomar Airport and it didn't take anything like five weeks.
