Along with two-dozen meteorologists and storm trackers, we're the only northeast Oklahoma station with two high-definition helicopters in flight to keep you ahead of the storm.

I've seen plenty of action during my 32 years in the U.S. Army. Now, in addition to flying missions in a Black Hawk, I deploy to breaking news and weather  in Osage SkyNews 6 HD, taking you to places and showing you things others can't.

And the cutting-edge technology on board gives us the advantage when severe weather strikes.

Let me show you how.
    
FLIR Ultra Media H-D camera:
        *Follow the storm in sharper detail and contrast as it forms and moves through, providing better life-saving info
        *Steadi-Zoom 360 gives us better stability & 4x greater resolution 
        * And because we can zoom into a tornado from three to five miles away, we can stay safe and help keep you safe.
Cockpit:
        *GPS equipped
        *Connected to real-time radar, lightning strike displays and other crucial weather data

And with our second helicopter, Sky News Nine HD, we can track storms as they develop and move toward Green Country.

Our Jim Gardner is at the helm of Oklahoma's fastest news helicopter, based in Oklahoma City. The Bell 407 is equipped with three HD cameras and the same onboard technology we use in Tulsa to keep crews safe, while keeping you ahead of the storm.
