This is the LA County Sheriff Department's Rescue 5 helicopter. The first time I saw it was at the air show but ever since then, I see it all the time on the local news. At the air show the crew performed a mock rescue by lowering a rescuer down to the ground and then lifting someone up into the helicopter. It was pretty impressive!
ABOUT THE SERIES
In 2008 I went to the American Heroes Air Show with my friend Ryan. The air show exhibits helicopters from law enforcement, fire departments, search and rescue, and other government agencies.
