Mercy Air Operations @ 2VE2, 2VE8

Do you ever look at an @AndrewWu spotting topic and experience a heart attack from from his utterly mid photography joke, realizing you are hours away from the closest hospital? Fear not, Mercy Air is there to help.

Like said in the previous topic, medevac aviation has been more of a discreet passion of mine. Lately, I have been investing more time into photographing some Mercy Air helicopters operating around Las Vegas Valley. Mercy Air is unique to other medevac companies as each base has it’s own specially painted helicopter.

All photos taken on Canon EOS SL3.

Shoutout to the flight paramedic/nurse for the signals. 👍🤙
