I don’t have any details on it, just came across the video on youtube. Looks like it happened last night.
Update: ’twas a bird strike. And my Coastie helo friend tells me that suspected/possible rotor damage calls for landing as soon as possible.
KEMAH, TX (KTRK) —
A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter that struck a bird Thursday night made an emergency landing in the parking lot of a Target in Kemah.
The pilots landed around 8pm in the parking lot of a Target in the 200 block of Marina Bay Drive.
I’m glad the crew is safe.
