BCP063 Calgary (Calgary Tower)
We stopped to thank the STARS crew today for successfully transporting 97CMA back in 2012 when she needed a life flight to save her life. The transport went from Red Deer Hospital to Foothills. The crew was so happy to see a survivor walk in the door that they offered to take us up in a celebration flight. I was excited to do this, but 97CMA had a bit of a anxiety attack and decided to opt out, 0728ALH decided he would just as soon stay on land too. I was whisked up in the air. Soon the Calgary Tower that 97CMA's room at Foothills faced was directly below us, the STARS crew was called to an emergency and quickly headed off for another life flight. They quickly lowered me onto the top of the Tower using the gear and took off. I tried unsuccessfully to stand but with the winds and rotor storm hitting me I fell to the floor. What should my nose land on,? but a Brass Cap. I quickly grabbed a pen out of my pocket and wrote the numbers down on my arm. Unfortunately I didn't dare take my phone out for a picture, I slowly crawled over to the hatch, and went into the warm interior, best adventure I've ever had.
