    Friday afternoon a Southwest Medivac helicopter crashed during a training mission just outside of El Paso, Tx. The pilot and both medical crew members were killed. Please lift your thoughts and prayers for the crew and their families.

    I fly fixed wing for a different company in the same area. The crash happened when we were on shift, and we knew one of the medics on the plane, so we were kinda shaken up about the whole deal. Thank you guys very much for the support.
