Night Flight


Known as Memorial Star Transport, the medical helicopter for Memorial-UCH Hospital, a Bell 407, in flight after sunset. Most days, and occasionally at night, you can see the helicopter headed somewhere. Considering the direction, it was probably heading for its maintenance base located in Penrose, CO.

Andrea has flown on medical helicopters a handful of times when working at the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH). Laurie has flown a couple of times on a UH-60 medevac when she worked at an Army hospital. Both wouldn’t mind another medevac mission. It’s an adrenaline rush whenever you’re on a helicopter, especially if you’re flying low and fast.

A video of Memorial Star Transport can be found here. After watching it, you may be ready for a ride along.
