Early this morning there was word that a HEMS bird crashed in rural eastern NM. And it proved to be Careflight 5 out of Santa Fe, NM. This hits a lot of us hard because NM EMS IS such a small community. I’m kinda stunned at all of this. I knew that crew, I’ve talked to them on and off at work. And, because I do aviation photography, I have seen that crew at hospitals and taken pictures of their bird. Tri-state Careflight is a good company, and their crews are amazing. They will be missed, greatly. Good thoughts go out to their families, and to everyone that’s hurting tonight.
RIP Brothers and sister. We have the watch now.
