Rotors n' Ribs: Gives helicopter rides to vets in Goshen

Posted:
GOSHEN - Helicopters and ribs; those two things brought people out to the Goshen Airport today, for the Midwest's largest gathering of helicopters. The event, Rotors n' Ribs, is a chance for people to show off their helicopters and share their flying experience. Saturday the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation was on hand giving veterans and their families rides in Huey helicopters.

 "Our mission is really to connect the American public with American veterans through army aviation.  We like to bring the aircraft to them as opposed to them come see us," says Christine Lesko, of the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation.

45 helicopters were at the event Saturday. The group is thinking about making it a two day event next year.
