Cool video.

It appears the original aircraft (the white one) is still operational as well.

I though they had several of the older white ones?

I didn't see any of the helicopters for quite a while but have seen one of them a couple times this summer.

If my memory serves me, the original helicopter was a surplus OH-58 Kiowa from the U.S Army that was converted to law enforcement use. I believe we received three airframes but only one was meant for duty, one was a reserve and the third was basically for spare parts. The third one was even left in its original Army green I believe.

The original white one has now been relegated to backup duty from what I can see. I know it was at the Miller Park celebration just recently.
