Helicopter Flight Plan Nixed in Michigan

Mar 21, 2014 No Comments by

U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Glen Veno wants to share the “different sensory experience” of the Vietnam War-era Huey helicopter this summer.

He’ll get that opportunity, but not in Hamburg Township as he had hoped. And not adjacent to a Vietnam War replica memorial listing his 58,000-plus fellow American soldiers killed in the war. A proposal to fly a utility helicopter, or Bell UH better known as the Huey, into Manly Bennett Park and offer flights nearby the planned Moving Wall war memorial fell apart this week.

The Moving Wall is scheduled to be on display from Aug. 28 through Sept. 1 at West Bennett Park south of M-36 off Merrill Road.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
