The 'helicopter on a stick' is now a star attraction of the Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk.CHALPAT SONTI June 18, 2014 3:56am
One of the features of the Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk was finally put into place on Saturday.
A good-sized crowd watched as the Iriquois — better known as ‘‘Huey’’ — helicopter was brought from Kestrel Aviation at Mangalore, where it had been prepared in recent weeks, to its final resting place on top of a pole next to the Luscombe Bowl.
The operation, conducted by Kestrel and Seymour Cranes, went reasonably smoothly, or at least with nothing a little Vaseline wouldn’t fix.
It gives Seymour an eye-catching sight and surely furthers the walk as one of the premier military tourism attractions anywhere in Australia.
By the time you read this, the power will have been connected, which should make for a great sight in the dark.
And a couple more pieces of artillery are still to come.
