Susan Anderson with AirMed's Facilities/Engineering waits military UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters to approach the landing pad at University Medical Center in Salt Lake City.

A Utah National Guard UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter lands at University Hospital in Salt Lake City Saturday. The landing pad at the university is one of the few elevated pads in the western United States that are large enough to hold three UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters at the same time — a necessity in a mass evacuation or emergency. The helicopters practiced landing on the pad.
