San Franciscans “Trauma”-tized – Low and Slow Choppers Film NBC Pilot

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

Saigon. I can’t believe I’m still in Saigon. That’s what San Franciscans thought to themselves today during the filming of NBC pilot and possible E.R. replacement Trauma. Why? Because it was just like the movie Apocalypse Now today what with all the thumping helicopters flying over Union Square and SoMA.

What’s this massive twirly-popper with room for 15? It’s a UH-1N Iroquois Twin Huey, just like in ‘Nam. Seen above Market Street today. Click to expand:

What’s this -”Angel Rescue”? Right, like San Francsico NIMBYs would ever allow a helipad for our quasi-Level One trauma center, or allow aptly-named, life-saving Life Flights within the City limits. Get real, Hollywood. Sure, some people are condemned to die, but Potrero Hill property values uber alles, right?

Good-bye Bell 212 #N911VR. Have a nice trip back to Fresno.

Helipad now!

Hell, helipad yesterday!
