Airport Appreciation Days

Monday, September 12, 2011

One of the many activities people could participate in was riding in a Blackhawk Helicopter during this past weekend's airport days or getting a face painting like Riley Wainman. [Order this photo]

Please tell me there is more to be reported than a misidentified helicoptor (it is a Robinson R-44 not a military blackhawk). There were dozens of activities going on. How about reporting how many children who received free airplane rides?

Bingo...it was a Robinson R-44 NOT a UH-60 Blackhawk. And I agree with RV8R...The Young Eagles Program was WELL represented by the Staff and Pilots there. I, for one, appreciate them there and the pilots which took my Daughters up on flights and for the Paid rides of the Helicopter and the other Aircraft which were there were well Done. I also salute the ground staff there making the Event safe and a success for all involved. Very well done and Thank You!!!
