For those who may be interested, I have created two new photo albums depicting law enforcement aircraft in Southern California.

The first album shows CHP air operations based at Fullerton Airport and can be found at:

The RadioReference.com Forums - davidhcrocker's Album: California Highway Patrol Air Operations

The second albums shows both choppers and fixed wing aircraft from various So Cal agencies and can be found at:

Very cool. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the chopper identified as Newport Beach is actually Costa Mesa "44 Eagle". NB's chopper is "43 Ocean".

Newport/Costa Mesa/Santa Ana Chopper

According to the FAA website, that chopper is registered to:

AIRBORNE LAW ENFORCEMENT SERVICES
361 PAULARINO AVE HANGAR #26
COSTA MESA CALIFORNIA 92626

I refer to it as a Newport Beach chopper because I heard one of the pilots refer to it as "Newport Beach Eagle" over the NAV/COM radio once.

Newport Beach had their own helicopter about 12 years ago. They got rid of the program and contracted with Costa Mesa, as others have mentioned. The name 43-Ocean was retired with the program (at least I haven't heard 43-Ocean since their program ended).

Back when you could actually hear them on non pursuit calls... *sigh*

Great pics, thanks!
