Lifeflight Recognized 

The Lifeflight of Maine helicopter was honored at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

It has flown over our area for the past ten years now, and has saved more than eight thousand lives in the process.

It has traveled nearly a half a million miles in that time span.

The public was able to tour the helicopter following the ceremony, and got a chance meet the crew that saved so many lives.

Some former patients were also on hand to see the nurses and the crew that treated them.
