A Nice Lineup of Helicopters

Aug 21, 2012 No Comments by

When I saw this lineup of helicopters outside one tent I knew there was a group of real helicopter enthusiasts inside.

Here is Ron Hughes, Mike Hamilton, Don Opplinger and Darren Berkey, and “friend”, all from the Wellsvillem KS area who belong to the Eagles Associates Kansas City Club and Franklin County Fliers. They wanted to make sure they brought enough helicopters and drove 12 hours to be at IRCHA, arriving Monday afternoon so they would have a good spot on the flight line when the Jamboree started. What a nice bunch of guys, and their “friend” isn’t bad either.
