Alum, landslide rescue pilot to be featured on PBS Wednesday
Bill Quistorf ’80 of Everett, Washington, will be featured in the “Nova” documentary “Killer Landslides” premiering Wednesday, November 19, on PBS television.
The documentary centers around the March 22, 2014, landslide in Oso, Washington.
As the chief pilot for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Quistorf directed helicopter rescue operations from the air immediately following the slide and used an infrared camera together with an Augmented Reality System Moving Map System to search for homes and survivors.
The documentary also explains the science and technology being used to predict future landslides.
