St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction has a new helicopter in service.
Flight staff say the Eurocopter AS 350 B3, also known as the AStar, is smaller and faster than the old helicopter. That aircraft has been sold and is now flying around Saudi Arabia doing medical transport.
KVNF's Laura Palmisano spoke to Tom Feller about the AStar. He's a flight nurse for St. Mary's CareFlight.
