Rescue 911 pinball by Premier/Gottlieb 1994

Here is a Rescue 991 pinball made by Gottlieb in 1994.  This game has a very strange design in the Helicopter toy.  This gadget moves up and down the playfield with a gear-motor, not unusual, but the copter spins on a shaft attached to a rubber tire pressed against a metal plate.  This works good until the tire gets a flat spot.  Also, the wires connected to the copter are difficult to position in such a way as not to restrict the copter from turning... not much torque from the tire.  Perhaps a servo motor under the copter would have been a better idea.  The game is fun to play none the less.   You get the ball in the left trap, a motor lifts the ball on a pole up in the air, the helicopter comes and a magnet grabs the ball.  Then you drop the ball in one of 2 holes for bonus "Lives" saved.  In multi-ball the copter does it's own rescue.
