Wow scary. When I was doing ENG I was always worried about that when I was hovering over the hood for extended periods of time.

Yeah, lucky they were just a couple blocks east of VNY airport. News report says they hit the engine, which quit, and LAPD did an auto onto the tarmac. Personally, I would have shot back, preferably with a .50 cal.

New from Bell Helicopter, It's the Kiowa Enforcer (Available in your departments colors today!)

I figure its not too far off from the stereotypical 206b-PD so why not a little "upgrade" just make the game a little more offense based this time around B)

If you have GoPro or other aviation footage you would like made into a montage, message or email thomas@tsmfirephoto.com This is a spare time hobby so it's free of charge.

Do you know how fast they could stop a pursuit with that thing! I'm all for it.

Well, its nothing like the 206 except with the way the cabin looks like from the outside, but still, a line of .50 cal across the front of a fleeing car would work everytime, plus with hellfire missles, dont have to worry about baricaded cop killers anymore

Nope. No need to waste bullets. I prefer to put the line thru the center of the fleeing car as opposed to warning shots.

Yeah, this isn't the first time. Both LAPD and LASD have been shot at before. LASD took two rounds from a psycho and his .40cal about a year and a half ago. The crew did a precautionary landing because they were not totally sure that they got hit. Sure enough, two bullet holes on the bottom of the aircraft.

Orange County Sheriff (CA) took a few rounds from a psycho and his .22LR rifle. The pilot was struck in the foot from the chin bubble. Ouch!

On the LAPD one, the engine did NOT quit. The crew just did an emergency landing at VNY and shut the engine down. The bullet did NOT hit the engine. It struck the underside of the fuel tank. The news was wrong (shocking).

Night time. Round-and-round with the old Starburst, in a narrow valley with a lot of aerials.

Innit great when you hear "Air One! Shots Fired! Shots fired!!", and you get to reflect on the mounting position of the light. Right -smack- underneath-your-favorite-butt. :huh:
