Produced by Jim Albritton | AirCare, the air ambulance service at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, marks its 15th anniversary with a new replacement helicopter that is roomier, faster and can transport a larger crew and two patients instead of one. The crew and hospital staff gathered atop the Wallace Conerly Hospital for Critical Care for tours of the new chopper which is based at UMMC in Jackson. A second AirCare helicopter is based in Meridian. For more information about AirCare and the state's only level one trauma center, go to
