REMSA/Care Flight to the Rescue!
Aug 23, 2021
Our local KTRK based REMSA/Care Flight comes to the aid of a midnight Army National Guard UH-60 rescue operation!
The UH-60 had just come from an extended hoist rescue mission near Quincy, CA and was heading to a Reno hospital with their patient and was running super low on fuel. They opted to land for fuel at Truckee before they realized there was no afterhours fuel service and they were now stuck! They called 911 and the sheriff's office got in touch with the onfield 24/7 Care Flight operations. Care Flight gave them fuel and sent them on their way.
Great work REMSA/Care Flight!! Just another benefit of your Truckee Tahoe Airport. (Photo by Andy Peek, Care Flight Pilot)
