Infrared photo flight rescheduled for Monday

July 10, 2011


Douglas County officials have rescheduled the infrared survey mission photo flight for Monday because of high winds on Sunday. As part of the mission, a helicopter will fly over several county buildings twice on Monday, between 11:15 a.m. and 3 p.m., and 8:30 p.m to 11:30 p.m. The photos allow the county to survey the conditions of the roofs.

The following buildings will be surveyed:

• Judicial & Law Enforcement Center, 111 E. 11th Street

• Douglas County Jail, 3601 E. 25th Street

• Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2120 Harper Street, Bldg. 21

• Douglas County Youth Services, 330 Industrial Lane

I guess those high winds just passed over me while I was sweating my **( off while playing golf today. Funny how that happens.

Well no, vertigo, I am aware of winds at altitude; however this helicopter was going to be flying pretty low from what I understand. And while I understand the difference in the two, LifeFlight apparently didn't have any problems.
