Aviation 19 had just finished its tour, hovering at eye level with the Stature of Liberty as part of an exhaustive, anti-terror sweep, when the crackling call came in to the pilots’ headphones:
A cop had just been attacked by a cleaver-swinging maniac in Midtown. The suspect was now on the run.
“Talk to me Goose,” pilot Derin De Vuono said to co-pilot Anthony Daniels, quoting Tom Cruise’s mantra from “Top Gun” as he pushed forward the controls of the $10 million Bell 429 patrol copter.
They put the helicopter down in Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn just long enough for a refuel, and shot to the skies over Herald Square at about 150 mph.
They made the trip in four minutes and spent another 45 looking for a needle in a haystack, but fortunately for all involved, the suspect was captured at street level.
