Sky Soldiers pilot fondly remembers our Huey

Mike Holland, Col. USMC (Ret.), Chief Pilot with the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation's Sky Soldiers Demonstration Teams, came with several of his colleagues for appearances at AHMEC's RotorFest 2014. During their trip he discovered that he was very familiar the TH-1L 157817 Huey on display in our gallery.

We are very excited and grateful that he shared his account with us. Thank you, Col. Holland!
