Chopper 2 Returns To The Skies

This morning, Chopper 2 was back in the air reporting on the great getaway for this Thanksgiving holiday. This is the first time it has been overhead New York City since the September 11th attacks. Chopper 2 was also covering the roads and highways this evening on CBS 2 News. The Daily News reports that CBS 2, along with WABC-TV, have received waivers from the FAA. This lets Chopper 2 and "NewsCopter7" fly in areas that WNBC's "Chopper4", WNYW's "Sky Fox", and WPIX's "Air 11" cannot. The reason that Channels 4, 5, and 11 haven't obtained this waiver is because of their pilots' license levels.
