Shergood Aviation has just released the latest in its EC-135 series, a police helicopter with incredible features. On top of a Shergood Aviation core of hardware and software, the helicopter is designed for law enforcement. FLIR, IR, and EO all visible on a monitor behind the pilot, and updates as the helicopter changes position. Launch tubes with tear grenades and flash bangs have been installed for unruly crowds, and a loudspeaker helps you get your instructions out. Spotlight and a position for a SWAT sniper makes storming hostile situations easy as veal cordon blue. Rappel ropes adjust by height, and the demo that this reporter saw looked so cool he clapped for an encore.
To get a look at this magnificent beast, there is a video (link), a showroom (Grayling link), and Marketplace too.
Shergood Aviation craft are meticulously designed for real flight experiences, and are ideal for pilots that are looking for an immersive experience.
The Archerfield Mouse, an animal that simultaneously made the protected and kill list at the airfield has been identified as a rabbit.
“Calling it a mouse would just be inaccurate,” said a Waterbank University biology professor. “Two large ears and a fluffy tail… that’s a rabbit.”
“No it ain’t,” hiccuped a painter working on the beacon light at Archerfield. “If you saw what I saw, you’d know they ain’t bunnies. They’re way too smart for that. I once put down my sandwich on a bench and when I turned back there was an IOU.”
An epidemic of stolen tires, hubcaps, and lug nuts has stricken urban areas, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
“This is the first real test of our new open source police model,” said the local Sheriff in East River. “Now that each area has what they need, we’ll see if Sheriff Departments can nip the tire nippers.”

Archerfield Aerodrome has resumed operations with a number of improvements, and continues to construct new facilities.
As the above image indicates, the runways have been paved to allow for newer aircraft (and an upcoming ZSK jet), and taxiways have been added to help with the inevitable increase in traffic. Limited parking is now available too.
TTI and the flight school have been moved to the north side of the airport. Pilots should note that Runway 07-25 no longer exists and has been replaced with Runway 09-27.
A cabbie responded to a call from a new taxi app called “Prototyped,” and it sent him to a remote substation in the hills past Prototype.
“I would say that it was no big deal,” the cabbie told us, “except that the security guys there strip searched me and mangled my doughnut for contraband. I’m not using the app until they fix it.”
Divers looking for rare sea life have given a thumbs up to a “micro-diving location in Tulagi, right alongside Archerfield Airfield (link). The location is full of sea rays, jellyfish, and much more, and divers say that they love that they can fly into SLAL and pop down for such ocean views. Follow the previous link to find it.
The VICE / MCE World War 2 combat destination of Ardennes (link) is drawing surprising crowds as anomaly travelers seek to beat the heat.
“I’ve been burning up for months,” said one traveler, “and to get some snowy combat is just what I need!”
“I bought a baguette and cheese and just sat outside in the snow,” another told us.
“Bienvenue,” an Ardennes local told us, “just don’t forget that we are in the middle of a war, here.”
