University Health Care has four choppers in service, but on Thursday, the smallest one moved on.
Air-Med's 206 helicopter has flown roughly 11.4 million miles, spent 8,800 hours in the air, and transported an estimated 8,000 patients.
At a retirement celebration Thursday, flight staff and former patients shared their stories of "The Little Helicopter that Could."
Vaughn Kinder, a former patient of Air-Med 206, said, "We are very indebted to that little machine. It really tugs at our hearts just to see it."
