New High-Tech NYPD Helicopter To Fight Terrorists
The NYPD has granted CBS 2 a first look at its expensive new helicopter — designed to do a lot more than simply fight terrorism.
CBS News senior correspondent John Miller was given a chance to go up for a ride recently.
The helicopter, a Bell 412EP, was funded with federal port security money and can carry up to 10 people, including a pilot, co-pilot, crew chief, NYPD SCUBA divers or Emergency Services Unit officers. It weighs 7,000 pounds, can travel 150 mph and costs $9.8 million, plus it carries another $4 million worth of sensitive equipment.
