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.

It gives Seymour an eye-catching sight and surely furthers the walk as one of the premier military tourism attractions anywhere in Australia.
