Helicopter Down In NYC?

Fri Apr 27, 2007 4:56 am

Just listening to the tower at JFK and they are reporting a helicopter down near the
Whitestone Bridge. Any NYC a.netters can add anything to this?

Can't find anything on it so far. You sure they didn't mean down as in LANDED?

No, one of the Coast Guard helicopters specifically said "A Helicopter went in the water" near the
Whitestone Bridge.

There is nothing about it on WCBS 880AM news - they usually pick up on stories like this very quickly.
None shall pass!!!!

If it helps Helicopter TV5 requested clearance to hover over the area. There seems to be a few helis hovering
in the vicinity judging from the tower transmissions

Some poor kid got run over and killed by a school bus near JFK.  Sad

Quoting JAL777 (Reply 3):
Some poor kid got run over and killed by a school bus near JFK.

It was a 23 yr old woman not a kid.

Another good reason why school buses should be banned from the road, and kids made to walk to school  Wink

Something should have been reported by now.

Watching the local NYC ABC News affiliate and they have not said anything. I am in a Ramp Tower at LGA with a clear view of the Whitestone Bridge, and if this actually happened there would be many helicopters hovering overhead and there are none. I am guessing and hoping this is a false report.

Its been over 2hrs since it was first reported on the Tower frequency. The tower asked the helicopter
where they were going, and the helicopter, Coast Guard, replied there was a helicopter in the water
near the Whitestone Bridge. Perhaps it was a training excercise.
