Wednesday’s Agenda: BP Helicopter Ride

Some members of the local media, myself included, are heading to Lakefront Airport in the morning to go up in a BP helicopter to survey areas affected by the oil spill nearly two years later (Friday is the two-year anniversary). We’ll also take a boat tour through affected marshlands.

I talked to Plaquemines Parish president Billy Nungesser earlier today and he is as fired up as ever about the aftermath of the spill. I plan to address some of his concerns with BP officials.

We’ll return to Lakefront Airport mid-afternoon and I’ll have live reports on WDSU News at 5 & 6. I’ll also update here with some pictures and video.

Right now, bed calls.
