Yield the right of way to emergency vehicles

Nice landing; made it seems, under emergency conditions.

I'm surprised the folks on 281 allowed him to "cut" in.

Regarding traffic being snarled, heck, if someone spit out their window, it'll snarl traffic at 281 and Bitters.

A police Blue Eagle helicopter lost power and was forced to make an emergency landing Thursday evening on busy U.S. 281 near San Antonio International Airport.

The pilot and an observer aboard weren't seriously injured in the 7:20 p.m. incident, although the observer complained of back pain, said San Antonio Police Chief William McManus. He declined to identify the pair.

Traffic was snarled for hours in the northbound lanes south of Bitters Road as vehicles were forced into two lanes.
