    A bit of a overkill having a manned helicopter sucking down fuel, risking lives and waking everyone up for miles just to take a short video zoomed in so much it looks like crap? My video of tonight’s fire looks a lot better and no one even knew I was there. All I heard was those blades rapping in the sky and dogs barking! You create so much downdraft you cant even get close without creating more problems. Unmanned Aircraft can take care of the video work and be there a lot faster and quieter than that beast equipped with a short video making camera on it.

    Well Bill…a Church burnt down. Good to see you have your priorities in order. Media coverage is always the first thing I think about while a Church is in flames.

      My comment was to enlighten those who are stopping everyone from using the right tool for the right job. I think the media should be aloud to use these machines in place of helicopters.
