Here are some pictures of the new OWU library. This shot is from the first floor looking up to the second floor railing. There will be seating along the rail so that students, staff, and faculty can sit and watch the activity taking place on the first floor.
The picture above shows the second floor and the library staff offices that are being framed in on the first floor.
This is a shot of the first floor looking toward the library staff offices. The steps on the left go to the second floor and will be wooden steps with a glass background. This allows those on the first floor to see through the steps and provides an open feeling.
This is another shot of the steps. There will be tables and seating along the wall here.

As part of my EMT training, I had the chance to get ground crew training with Tulsa Life Flight. The helicopters they use are remarkable...8.5 million each. This is a remarkable group that transports patients involved in accidents or other trauma to receive hospital care. Above is a shot of the pilot's instruments.
Here is a shot of the back of the helicopter. You can see the space for the flight nurse or EMT as well as the stretcher. The helicopter can also be configured to transport two patients if needed.
Here's a shot of the outside of the helicopter with someone from Collinsville Fire Department. We did the training with them. They are a great group!
Here is the helicopter landing. The dust you see is from the rotor wash which can generate wind at 80-90 miles per hour. Cover your eyes!
