Flying to help


Ed Shoemaker and Chip Gresham have high-pressure, fast-paced jobs. To say the least. They work in an emergency room that travels through the air at 160 miles per hour.

Shoemaker is a pilot on a LifeFlight helicopter based at UMass Memorial Medical Centre in Worcester, while Gresham is a flight physician.
