Superior Air Med EC135.

mayday given by the pilot

Wonder if the protests had anything to do with this, while they should have been over by then the protests culminated just 3 miles away from the crash on the freeway. Maybe he got shot at?

Sure, strict gun control is the answer. I'm sure all the criminals will line up and turn in their guns. They certainly wouldn't want to break any laws.

It was penntistar which is a contract from Michigan. It was the back-up EC135P1. Pilot did what he had to do to get it down. Let the rest play out with the NTSB. It's up right and crews walked away. Something stopped working, all are alive!

Three of the helicopter’s occupants had evacuated by the time emergency crews arrived, according to Turner. Fire crews then removed the patient who was originally being transported.>

Yes they do...superior owns all of them. 3 of them have pentastars 135 cert numbers on the side of them and 1 has metros 135 cert number on the side of it. So to make it easier to understand....3 helos are on pentastars 135 cert and 1 helo is on metros 135 cert.

You people crack me up guessing at things. It's a Penntistar EC-135 P1. It was a back-up ship for the program. Pilot got it on the ground up-right and didn't kill anyone. The NTSB AND FAA will get to the bottom of it and you will see everything was done right!
