Aviation Assets Involved In Boston Takedown?

Sat Apr 20, 2013 2:29 am

I was wondering what aviation assets were involved in the hunt for the Tsarnaev brothers, particularly in the last phases. I saw some UH-60s for certain. Anything else? Drones?

It was said that a thermal imager aboard a State Police helicopter was used in locating the suspect. It is also being said that the homeowner called in and reported blood near the boat that the suspect was hiding in, so it's not yet clear which provided the crucial break in the case.
