Pave Hawk Medical Evacuation Helicopter
After the battle of the Yukon Forest Fire, a Pave Hawk Medical Evacuation Helicopter was used to evacuate the book’s main characters to Eielson AFB just south of Fairbanks. Note how the six stretchers are stacked one on top of the other on either side of the passenger compartment.

The last chapter of the book involves a fateful meeting between the US Military, members of The Order, and the surviving scientists that takes place around the commander’s conference table in the headquarters building at Eielson AFB. I toured Eielson AFB as part of my research for the books, and took this photograph and many others.
