The Air Evac Lifeteam crew from Obion County, Tenn., experienced a hard landing at 11:40 a.m. on Wednesday, November 8 in Union City, Tenn. The pilot, nurse and paramedic on board the aircraft were treated and released from the local hospital. There was not a patient on board the aircraft at the time.
Brad Woody, program director for the Obion County Air Evac base, was waiting for the crew at the 911 dispatch center in Union City when the hard landing occurred.
“The crew was on its way to the dispatch center to go over the new satellite tracking capabilities Air Evac provided to them,” Woody said. “We are thankful the crew experienced only minor injuries.”
The NTSB and FAA have been notified of the event.
