I'm with a small crew heading for the helicopter I found yesterday. Instead of going in through the far gate, we're hoofing it from I39.

Angie, the medivac chopper pilot I talked about yesterday, is with us. We hope she can tell us if the chopper will fly again. #zompocalypse

We took out the zombies still around the helicopter using quiet weapons. Angie is checking out the aircraft. I'm looking at the zombies...

These zombies are almost three years old, so it's hard to tell...but I don't think any of them are @ProfPierson. Maybe he did get away.

Angie says the helicopter might fly again, tho it needs maintenance because it has been exposed to the elements since Z-day, back in 2009.

It's a military bird. Built to be rugged. She's most concerned about degraded rubber parts. She and some mech whizzes have duct tape out...

We found some long-downed zombies in the deep grass. Shot in the head. There are shell casings in and around the chopper. #zompocalypse

We know the remains are zombies because they weren't disturbed by animals. Nothing will eat the flesh of the undead. #zompocalypse

More dead zeds between the chopper and the runway.

Consensus opinion here is that the helicopter landed when fuel ran out. The occupants stayed inside for awhile, then went for the runway.

It's giving us hope that @ProfPierson met up with his plane and got safely away. If it weren't for him, I'm sure I'd be dead. Or undead.

With a new battery in place, the helicopter's electronics check out. The hydraulics and fuel system will take some more work. Back tomorrow.
