WLTV gets a bird…well, sort of…

UPDATE: 07/23/2014 – Our friends at SFLTV.com now report that WLTV’s new “Vision 23″ is in fact, only a vision. The helicopter shown in the promo shot (right) is real, but only serves as a back-up for the other two news helicopter’s in the market (WSVN’s “Skyforce 7″ and WPLG’s shared “Sky 10.” The decked out bird shown in the video is the former helicopter from WTSP, but does not exist in its “Vision 23″ form shown (right)

WLTV does have access to a helicopter now, but only because the station has joined the sharing agreement between WPLG, WFOR and WTVJ, with WPLG’s Sky 10. Now four TV stations in one market are sharing the same helicopter, leaving only WSVN as the only station in the Miami market to operate its own helicopter.

There is no room for ads in Miami…
