In the news


This is a shameless plug for my brother Mason Dunn, who flies one of our local news helicopters. He has been featured on CNN for tonado coverage, and recognized by PETA for saving a deer stranded on a frozen lake bed. If you haven't seen the video, go to UTUBE and type in his name. The deer had been there for hours with rescuers on the banks, who had been trying to help it with no success. He knew how to position the blades to create enough force to safely blow the deer across the ice. You will also see some amazing tornado videos. He has worked to help fire crews, and always goes back to check on animals trapped by wildfires to make sure they were saved. There have been a couple of times he was over my house on the job, a close fire and a bad storm. All which turned out okay, but I have asked him not to visit on business anymore ! He is one of my heroes, and he does a fabulous job.
