Flying in a Winter Wonderland

This December, Angel MedFlight has safely transported patients in some harsh winter conditions.  The weather can be unpredictable, but the Angel MedFlight medical crew is always ready for whatever Mother Nature throws their way.  And this month, she threw a lot of snow.

Descending into Jamestown, NY

On December 16, 2009, Angel MedFlight transports a patient to Jamestown, NY where the snow falling.  Even with a runway full of snow, the crew lands safely.  By the time they need to take off again, the snow had stopped falling.

Then on December 18, 2009, the medical crew transports a patient from West Palm Beach, FL to Baltimore, MD.  On the same day, a wicked storm was moving its way up the East Coast.

Forecasters in Baltimore predicted 20 to 30 inches of snow to fall.  After safely transporting the patient to the receiving facility, the medical crew headed back out into the storm.  By the time the storm had passed, 21 inches of snow had fallen on Baltimore.  The medical crew had to wait until the Lear jet was dug out before they could take off and head back to Arizona.
