Fire Attack Helicopter Pilot Taken Away By Plane

On Monday, August 24th, a helicopter pilot fighting a fire near Mt. Hood, was killed. The cause of the crash is still being investigated.

This afternoon, August 27, the pilot was taken back to their home town in Montana, via a Cessna Caravan, departing Hood River airport at around 11:45 am.

A mass of fire crews and police officers joined the salute for the hero that died in the line of duty. Here are some photos that I took.
