Thanks to CareFlite 6!

We want to thank pilot Uli, flight paramedic Jeff, and flight nurse John for letting us hang out with y’all today. We did not receive any calls (which I guess is a good thing in the air medical profession!) but we had fun hanging out. Hopefully we will be able to come back soon!
