History: The first ENG helicopter

Recommended Posts

Hi Helicodger


Thanks for the link and heads up on the article!


I remember sending this link to the station manager and news director of my station while not the first one...a first in another way!:

OK, since I am an aircraft crash nut, I thought I would throw in some Los Angeles trivia.


Horrible accident occurred when a LASD Bell 47 went down North of LA, killing both LA Sheriff Deputies. To the rescue came an LA City Fire Department helicopter....also a Bell 47. And the station covering the crash ? You guessed it, KTLA Channel 5, in a 3rd Bell 47.


BTW, I was over at the VNY Air Ops a few months ago and what do I see? The original old City Fire Bell 47 now sitting in a corner of the hangar....still looking pretty cool.
