Location: William M. Allen Theater
Join us for a very special presentation about the role of HH-53 "Jolly Green Giant" helicopters in rescue missions during the Vietnam War. Our featured speakers will be Brigadier General Dale Stovall, USAF (Ret) and Museum of Flight Docent Jim Platt, both of whom flew numerous rescue missions in "Jollies" during the war. BrigGen Stovall went on to command Special Operations Helicopter units, establishing himself as one of the foremost experts on combat helicopter operations in the world. Come hear these men speak about their experiences--harrowing, heroic, and humbling--and ask your own questions about this important part of the history of the Vietnam War and military aviation!
