TBT, The Beginnings of HEMS

From a friend of Flight Nurse Jeanne Foulds...

 "MAST=Military Assistance to Safety and Traffic. I flew on those BEFORE Lifestar existed. Dr Boyd formed the Trauma Transport Team in 1982, and we used MAST helicopters, UH-1s out of Ft. Stewart. The smaller aircraft is the original Lifestar ship (a Bell LongRanger, or 206L) from when the program became operational on July 1st, 1985. It was replaced by the BK in 1987."
