	P.O. Box 5039
	Sioux Falls, SD  57117

Type: B200
Tail #: N901SH

Team: Two Pilots, flight nurse, flight paramedic. No injuries reported. Patient on board. 

Description: 
	While en route from Minot, ND to Houston, TX, the aircraft experienced
	a left bleed air failure.  The pilots followed the checklist and shut
	off the bleed air flow from the left side.  The aircraft was in a
	position that made Sioux Falls, which is the home base, a suitable
	place to divert and land.  The aircraft landed without further issues.

Additional Info: 
	The patient was moved to Sanford Intensive Air's second King Air and
	flown on to Houston with minimal delay.  The bleed air line was
	replaced and the aircraft was test flown then returned to service by
	5:00p central time.
