Damian followed him across the dusty landing pads to the helo-hangar.
Two, take this bitch to the helo-pad.
That's my helo coming.
"Tim, helo!" a dark figure shouted from the awaiting shuttle.
"I'll contact the helo," Dan said with a wink and left.
He heard the beat of a helo approaching.
He trotted to join Dan as the helo lowered from the sky.
The helo hovered near the edge of the plateau.
They sat and pulled out laser guns, arming them and waiting as the helo took them down the mountain again to their awaiting teams.
He had a four-hour helo and hiking trip ahead of him to their nearest secure comms facility tucked into natural cave a few ranges over.
If the helo ride hadn't taken three hours, she would have thought they never left.
Her silent treatment and quiet anger lasted through the long helo ride back to the secret comms center.
He waved the helo away and led her to the hidden entrance.
Emergency lighting glowed red, turning the world inside the broken helo surreal.
The helo creaked but didn't move.
She was ready to break down crying and throw herself out of the helo in the hopes she didn't die when she hit the water.
The helo creaked and slid again in the wiring.
The helo teetered, throwing Brady off his feet.
Our helo went down and got tangled in the bridge's support wires.
Or if the helo hadn't gone down.
The terror on Lana's face was fresh in his thoughts, and he heard her scream again as he was flung from the helo, before it hit the water.
"Did they pull the helo out of the river?" he asked.
Dan stayed behind where your helo went down to search.
Nothing. It was bombed out about a day after the helo went down.
The small team boarded the helo and lifted off.
Brady looked over the newest results then called for a helo to airlift them.
The helo left them at Texarkana, the southernmost point on their map, before missile fire from the other side of the river erupted.
Brady watched the helo lift off then turned to the abandoned city.
The missile fire stopped when the helo retreated.
Dan says the condos were leveled about two days after the helo went down.
I lost her when our helo went down.
The sound of a helo broke his concentration, and he glanced upward before the micro warned him of another incoming strike.
A helo thumped in the near distance, and she shrank down farther to keep it from spotting her.
The thump of the helo returned, this time much closer.
When the helo circled the rocks, she began to suspect they'd picked up her transmission.
The helo moved away.
He'd barely survived the helo crash, she assessed, shocked.
But he was battered beyond recognition from the helo crash, Dan said.
Soon, she heard the unmistakable sound of a helo nearing.
Brady's body was placed on the helo, and Lana climbed in with him while Dan and Elise stayed with Jack.
Doctors worked quickly to stabilize Brady in a helo ride that seemed far too long for Lana's comfort.
They made her want to cry, for she couldn't imagine what kind of pain he'd been in after the helo crash.
They worked on him until she felt the helo descend and finally reach the ground.
"C'mon. They're holding the helo to take you home," Elise said, holding the door open.
The helo flew west, towards the border with Idaho.
Still exhausted, he sat next to Dan in the helo that transported them from the medical facility to the lush green foothills of the Rockies.
The helo flew over Tim's ranch and mansion, perched on a lake.
The helo landed, and the two of them emerged.
Everything they hadn't transplanted after the helo crash had been transplanted this time around.
