With a 229-gallon fuel tank to feed, EmergyCare’s LifeStar EC-145 helicopter is a thirsty bird. The medical helicopter, now based at Corry-Lawrence Airport, doesn’t have to travel very far to fill up, however. LifeStar regularly fills up on fuel sold at the airport. The helicopter stopped for a refill Monday afternoon before returning to headquarters, just a couple of football fields away — as the copter flies. Journal photo by Stephen Sears
