Medical Helicopter Program
At Hartford Hospital

Welcome to Alan Chaniewski's "unofficial"LIFE STAR Helicopter Web Site. Within these pages you will find the most comprehensive, up-to-date unique information on Hartford Hospitals Air Medical Program. Serving LIFE STAR as their photographer, from its inception twelve years ago, I have captured thousands of unforgettable images of these helicopters and crews at work. I would now like to share with you some of the "behind the scenes" pictures that I have taken. You will also find, maps, graphics, and animations documenting the history these air ambulances.

Check out the Recent Missions page! Pictures of the Farmington, Ct. double helicopter call on Route 4 on June 19, 1999.

Here's what you will find inside:

April 5, 1999 Life Star moves one of it's ship's to Norwich, Connecticut, at the William W. Backus Hospital!

This is Life Star 1 at the helipad in the rear of the hospital.

If you would like to listen to Life Star communicate with Backus Security when they are departing or enroute back to the hospital, they operate on 464.975 rx and 469.975 tx. The initial dispatch for the helicopter is still on 155.385. Don't forget to listen to their portables for communication between the crew members. That is still on 461.3875 and operates on low power. Special thanks to my dispatcher friends down in the Norwich area for this info!

Still want more information about the Norwich/Groton area? Give these guys at Center Groton Fire Department a hit on their page, and tell them I sent you there!
