I was headed out for my usual ride the other day, rounded the second corner, and saw one of the orange Ornge helicopters over on the landing pad at the hospital. I've never seen one up close in action, so I mentally cancelled my ride, and over I went to take a closer look.
Ornge is the company that operates Ontario's air ambulance system. Don't know whether the name or the colour came first.
It so happened that they were wheeling a patient out on a stretcher, and he quickly disappeared inside.
The pilots climbed in, two of the three doors shut, and they started getting ready for take-off.
Nope, it seems to take several minutes to get things ready.
Yup, just after this the other door closed and they rose into the air - no more pictures because I was busy taking the video below,
And after that, off into the southwest sky they went, probably headed for London.
Enjoy the video if it works for you.
If you missed my video of the falling rain yesterday,
you might want to go back and try it.
