Video: Radiation-spotting chopper is newest NYPD anti-terror weapon
New York City has been attacked by terrorists in the air and on land during the past 20 years. It’s still considered the number one terror target in America.
And one of the biggest potential threats is an attack by sea. But the newest tool designed to protect New York is a specially outfitted helicopter.
As the Bell 412 chopper approached an airfield in a remote corner of Brooklyn recently, everyone came out of the police hangar to see it land.
The brand new $10 million dollar craft was being delivered from the factory in Tennessee.
It’s loaded with $4 million worth of hi-tech equipment, and part of its job is to keep a nuclear bomb out of the city.
